Happy Holidays!!!

                                   Barbara Mandrell (David Kirchhoff)

            Red Fortune (David Kirchhoff) A very nice red. Highly recommended.

        Happy holidays to all my daylily friends!  Hope you are having a nice holiday season.  I thought this would be a nice time of the year to post some pictures of some of the best red tetraploids from my garden this past year.  Here is a sampling:

                        Clump shot of Heavenly United we stand (Gossard)
                        Sky King and/or Sky Dragon (Gossard) in the back.

                           Tavares Towering Inferno (Pete Harry)

                         Dale Hensley (Frank Smith)

                        Sunset Drive (a future intro from Paul K. Lewis)

                          Bellagio (Paul K. Lewis 2015) A favorite of mine.

                      Ultimate Sacrifice (Larry Grace)

    Well folks it's been a mild winter so far.  We are getting some lake effect snow today.  Somewhere in the order of 3 to 4 inches, so it's just making the xmas season a little nicer.  Hope you are all having a nice holiday season.  Hope to post some garden shots after the first of the year.

Blue eyed seedlings.

                    Vertical Horizon X Paul Aucoin (Paul K. Lewis seedling)

     I've always enjoyed blue eyed daylilies ever since seeing Steve Moldovan's introduction, Piece of Sky.  Since that time there have been a lot of improvements and varying colors in the shade of color in the eyezone.  It is an exciting time to be breeding for blue and these are a couple of my seedlings.

Hope you enjoyed this quick little segment.  I think I will follow it up with some of my favorite red tetraploids from this past summer in the next installment.  Happy holidays!
