I really like the second one. Very nice double edge!

Is the first one crepey or does it have a lot of substance? I have a yellow NOID about the same size and with the same texture but it is a crepe. I love the crepes!

And how in heavens do you describe the fourth one? Is that a washed eye? Halo? But it seems to bleed into the double edge so does that make it something else? I like it but I don't know how to define it!

The first one has a lot of substance, a very firm bloom, turns almost red as it is done, which is kinda weird.
Not sure how to describe the fourth one, hoping someone with more experience can help me with this in!
I am really liking the babies, the ones with (Precious Candy X Priscillas Smile) as pollen parent are BIG blooms, and have many buds per stalk...MANY. Watching as they bloom,will see how consistant the blooms are....

Wow! I don't know of any daylily that gets darker like that! You have something unique!

I had one seedling that bloomed this year that kept changing color on me. Some blooms were orange-red and others were a dark coral color. I'm hoping next year it will figure out what it wants to be!

You've got some great seedlings! If they have big blooms and lots of buds you should register them!

Much heavier, toothy edge than first bloom!

The fact that it is not fragrant, really doesn't matter to me. If I like a dl I buy it regardless, fragrance is a bonus. I think most people feel this way. There are a few occasions I have searched out something fragrant on purpose, say for my front porch or next to the shed door.

I assume you are wanting an honest opinion. If not, stop reading now.
I think the color is pale, washed out and not saturated. I can't even tell you want color it IS. Pink? Peach? cream, yellow, I don't' know just blah. The texture appear a little frumpy to me.

But what I do like (Ok not personally, I don't like teeth, but many do) is the heavy toothed edge. If you could cross it with something and continue the thick toothy edging, while stabilizing the color into something more prominent, then I think you will have something.

I think a picture taken in the shade might give a better idea on the colour. Could you post another picture, muffin?

true, photos in the shade are very different sometimes, also the time of day the pic was taken, some fade out alot if the sun is strong.. if that is the case, disregard my earlier comment about washed out color and then post a photo of a morning bloom. That would be better to comment on I think.

Will try with the next bloom...many more buds so a few more opportunities for good/better pictures.
