Continuing with my segment about streaked, stippled, and spotted daylilies, I wanted to show the tetraploid advancements in this category. Some years back my friend, Bill Waldrop from Georgia did a conversion on Pink Stripes. He sent me back a fan of it last year. Also a recent breakthrough by Rich Howard came when he introduced Explosion in the Paint Factory. I believe Tet. Pink Stripes and Explosion in the Paint Factory will be instrumental in advancing the look of these types of daylilies. Recent introductions from Chad Bush are starting to make break throughs there as well. Below are photos of daylilies that have this kind of look. Enjoy the picture show:

I'd like to thank all the hybridizers for their photos. Remember these photos are the property of each hybridizer and use without prior consent is prohibited. There are some really exciting advances going on with daylilies and these are just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for part 2 on this series where I will show you some really cool photos of some new intros and seedlings in this category.
