The season continues.

     Well, hello all my daylily friends!!!  Let's get on with this week's photos.  At the top of the page is Al's Gold Tower (Goldner).  One of the tallest and best branched daylilies in my garden.  What show stopper! Pictured right below it is John Shooter's Hand of Faith. It's a great diploid parent.  Sets pods easily!

Pictured above is Marina Del Ray (Guy Pierce)

Pictured above is Mix and Match (Elizabeth Salter) Nice eye!

Pictured above is Sips of Sin (Dale Hensley) This one stops visitors in their tracks.

Pictured above is Tom Leonard (Vic Santa Lucia) What a vibrant gold!  Well, that's it for this week.
The season is winding down and the digging of reject seedlings begins.  Back breaking work!

More toothy daylilies.

     Hello my friends.  Let's get right to the post for the week.  Pictured at the top of the page is Oklahoma Sand Burr from the Holleys in California.  What a magnificent toothy daylily.  Right below it is John Benz's Fang and Claw. 

Pictured above here is Ruffled Strawberry Parfait, one awesome parent for toothy daylilies.

Picutred above here is a seedling of mine out of Gaudeamus. (Moldovan)  I wish you could
see the branching and bud count.  It's amazing.  If you're using this daylily, expect great things.
That's it for this week.  More great blooms to come.

Almost peak bloom.

      Wow, it sure is close to peak bloom.  When it gets like this I can spend hours just writing out cross tags for all my hybridizing.  I'm sort of tired, so let's get on with the picture show.  Above is my front yard.

The seedling above is one of mine out of Millennium Falcon.

This seedling above is one of mine out of Emerald Oasis.

This photo above is Di Decaire's Four Beasts in One.  Love the pattern!

The photo above is Elizabeth Salter's Serenade in Spring.  Excellent daylily.

The daylily above is Ted Petit's, In his Image.  A very unique pattern.  Have a good week folks!

Season swings into high gear.

      Well, here we are at the end of the June and all the earlies are opening up.  Some of the new arrivals are mixing in nicely.  At the very top of the page is Judy Davisson's Mister Butters.  Looking grand today!  Right below it is Augie's Unique Beauty, hybridized by Augie Krupien.  Introduced by Rich Howard in 2007.  It is a tetraploid and fertile both ways.  Very unique!  Let's get on with the picture show below.

Pictured above is Di Decaire's I don't kid.  Nice colors!

Pictured above is a future intro which I named for a good friend, Luanne Tarro.
It is out of Wonder of it all.

Pictured above is Luddy Lambertson's Blue Eyed Dragon.  Nice teeth!

Finally pictured above is David Kirchhoff's Fabulous Frieda.  What a great red!  That's it for this installment.  I think I spent a couple hours just making out cross tags.  Happy gardening!

Season is beginning!

     Well, my friends....we wait for many months for this time and it is just beginning.  To my suprise the first seedling to bloom (which is pictured above) turned out to be pretty amazing!  It is a seedling out of Gerda Brooker's Victorian Gardens Heavens Applause.  Wow, what a pattern.  It's petals do sort of canoe in a little, but that pattern is to die for.  Also blooming below is Larry Grace's Dr. Stump.  It has been very consistent and sits on top of a nice scape. The picture at the very bottom is of all the scapes popping up in my front yard.  Hope you enjoyed the pics.  More to come.

Pictured above is Luddy Lambertson's Toss the Feathers.
