TOOPHER x CASPER'S REVENGE - FFO this year -- Finally, at last, my favorite seedling! She didn't bloom for me last year and I was afraid she had missed again this year, but at last here she is.

And I put this pollen on my ROARING LIONS bloom -- sure hope it takes!

Yay or nay? 1st year blooming so I am hoping colors will improve. Large flower on a very strong, tall sturdy plant with scapes almost an inch in diameter.

Any thoughts what I could cross it with? Thanks for the input Smiling

I like it a lot. I like the lighter ruffled edge and the thin eyezone line and yellow throat. I will let others with experience suggest a potential cross Smiling

YAY! It has some good features, and the changes from the first year to the second can sometimes be wonderful!

It has a triangular eye ring, so maybe cross it with something else that has a triangular eye but has more of an edging?

Betty-- gorgeous seedling I love the teeth!

Sandi-- like that seedling a lot! Seems quite unique to me. Splitting hairs but ideally IMO it would have either a bit more color or a bit less-- but could be hard to cross it anything in a way that maintains all those nice features it has. Definitely see if more maturity changes anything...



Forgot to post an update on my 4" tall first-year seedling that shocked me by brazenly putting up a scape.
It did manage to produce 2 blooms! Was able to snap a photo at the end of the day of the first bloom:

Was out of town and missed the second. Not exactly a thrilling bloom but I have to give this guy an "A" for effort! We'll see how much it changes in year 2...

Ironically, I've had 2 seedlings re-bloom for me this year.

This one had it's last re-bloom on August 2:
Game Face x Born to Be Wild (DDD19):

And this one still has 1 more bloom to open:
Magic of Oz x Lily Munster (ZZZ19):
Thumb of 2017-08-12/beckygardener/b227d0

I doubt any others (seedling or named) will bloom after that last one, but you just never know!

Wow, the daylilies growing just get better and better!!

Love your second one, Becky! I keep meaning to add Lily Munster but haven't done it yet...she sure produces some great kids!

I've posted these two before, but it's been kind of slow and I figure we should keep bumping this thread up!

These two are flagged to go to my "hopeful futures" bed. Every time I see these I am amazed at how lucky I am to have them in my garden. Both are from seeds purchased in 2016 on the Lily Auction from users Emery (Reggie Morgan) and cottosnag (Cheryl Otto).
