Some fine toothy daylilies from Ohio.

    I feel lucky that I live in a state with so many great hybridizers within a short drive of where I live.  Ohio almost feels like the capital of the United States for toothy hybridizers.  Some of the best, if not the best toothy daylilies have been bred here.  I wanted to feature some seedlings from some of Ohio's best hybridizers. Check them out:

                         Tom Polston seedling (Tom lives in Dayton, Ohio)

Wow!  The future looks bright for toothy daylilies! Some of these I have seen in person and I can tell you they are cutting edge.  I had to include the daylily, Gaudeamus from Steve Moldovan at the end. Gaudeamus was Steve's finest toothy introduction and I believe his only one that I know of.
Here are the list of hybridizers and where they live in Ohio: Guiru Zhang (Mason, Ohio), Tom Polston (Dayton, Ohio), Jamie Gossard (Galloway, Ohio) Mike Holmes (Bellbrook, Ohio), and John Benz (Cincinnati, Ohio). All the above pictures are the property of each hybridizer and use without prior consent is prohibited.  If you would like to view any more daylilies from each hybridizer, just Google their name, and their website should come up.  Thanks for stopping in.  More to come in February, so stay tuned.
