     I wanted to continue my streaks, stipples, and spots segment with more tetraploid advancements in this category.  Over the past year I have witnessed in person and seen on Facebook many new very cool daylilies with this look.  I am looking forward to the future of these types of daylilies and hope to be fortunate enough to create a few of them as well.  Here are some advancements from around the country:

 Sunny Caldwell seedling .5 (point five) It sometimes has two different colored blooms from the same plant.  Amazing!  Thanks Sunny for sharing these pics!

                       Clown Pants (Steve Todd)  Awesome daylily Steve!

                         William Marchant seedling. What a unique look!

                  Chad Bush seedling. Unbelievable. What an advancement!

                                Chad Bush seedling (speckles and teeth!)

                               Chad Bush seedling. Fantastic Chad!

There have been some really cool advancements in the world of dots on daylilies as well.  Take a look at these pictures from Dave Mussar of Canada of some of his intros.  Fantastic Dave!
