Some new seedlings and one from last year.

The purple batch are all Trahlyta X Laura Harwood and this is first year blooms for them. The two that look extra purple aren't quite as purple as the photographed.

Then I have a little one from Spacecoast Tiny Perfection crossed with a bitone seedling-the color improved from last year.

Then a three year seedling that will get one more chance next year just because I love the band in the center. It struggles to open fully, but this has been a bad year for plants so I don't want to not give it a better year before tossing.

Lisa - It's interesting to see the sibs from the Trahlyta and Laura Harwood cross. You can really see that Trahlyta influence in most of them. My favorite is the first seedling. I also love that last seedling you posted with the blue band. I would give it more time, too. It's really pretty!

The colors on that last seedling are beautiful. Don't throw it out!!! If it were mine, I would be looking for anything and everything that is rounder, opens well (cmo? recurved?) and is color compatible to cross it with.

I like to see how the sibs look from the same crosses. Interesting what characteristics they will show.

Congrats on a nice grouping.

I like all the color varions of the purple daylilies. Lighting really does make much a big diffence in color!

I try to get over early in the morning to get the pictures before they begin to fry in the heat. Some days I didn't make it until early afternoon. The purple ones are at my dad's house.

I like seedling #4 for its pencil eye.

As Polymerous said, with that last seedling, don't wait for it to turn good -- instead, cross it with other good things and see if you can get its good characteristics along with theirs.
