Wow, such gorgeous seedlings everybody! I am just awed with the lovely and unique daylilies seedlings that you all achieve.

Shirlee, the pattern and colors on Marina del Rey x Bowtie Affair is absolutely amazing. Would love to buy this daylily if you register it someday.

Ken and Jamie, love each of those. Beautiful!

Karen, will do if all works out. I am so pleased with that one,
and said "how did it do that" when viewing it for the first time.

Well I am thrilled to finally join the hybridizers club! Got my first ever seedling blooms on 2-yr old plants.

Huge 6.5-7" blooms. Very surprised to see what appears to be an applique-like look to the throat.

Apparently an EMO and we had severe weather early this morning so rain blotched the blooms a bit.
I am particularly thrilled because the scape has such phenomenal branching

I agree!

This forum is amazing. Such beautiful blooms. I'm so sad my seedlings are almost all bloomed out. Crossing my fingers for some rebloom.

Jamie: the parents are 'Bombay Silk' and 'Rose Fizz'.

The seedling looks very much like Bombay Silk, which has great branching too though this seedling's branching might actually be even better...

Here is a sib to the great branching seedling with a FFE today:

Doesn't have the same great branching. Light diamond dusting.

Another seedling FFE today:

Light diamond dusting. Oddly doesn't show very well in the photo but the throat is a rich orange darker than the petals, and I really like the look of that.

It's this project I am working on, naming a daylily for my dad. He doesn't know about it, but if I see one with potential, I ask him about it, what he thinks etc.. He is a big fan of that one. Now I mark it to "watch' over the next couple of years to see how it develops. I guess it will take me that long to think of the perfect name for it too.
Thanks for your comments. I appreciate them.

This is my first go-to thread every time I go to NGA. I love to see what everyone is getting with their seedlings. It's so fascinating to see which genes carry on to the next generation of daylilies. I must say that all here are sure getting some really beautiful seedlings. If looks alone were all that mattered, then every one of those on this thread would be worthy of registering!

Tracey - As far as naming goes ..... You could try using your Dad's first name and use an adjective either before or after his name. I have several names picked out for some of my family members. (Which is my whole purpose for hybridizing daylilies.) Or just use his full name, though I believe you have to get his permission to use his full name to be able to register it with AHS.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
