I'm wondering why some of my daylily sdlgs are opening in the evening as shown below. This was taken at this what they call a nocturnal opener?

I like The Lake Norman spider with clematis. Your last seedling is my favorite.

I have one of Gossards that opens at around 8 p.m. It is a nocturnal. Marg

RE: noc? and some sdlgs

I would guess you may be right about your seedlings being nocturnal. I really like your last two seedlings. The last one really has nice coloring.

Thanks Marg and Linda.
It is interesting that when I checked the parents of the second bud opening, which is the same as the SC-SSU (strawberry candy x spiny sea urchin) seedling, neither parent is nocturnal.....I will have to look into this further when time permits.

Here is another sibling to SC cross, which is bigger and darker, but doesn't have the nocturnal habit.
