I think this could be peak bloom here. An odd growing season this year, with some plants not blooming at all, and the bud counts are down considerably on others.

Vertical Horizon was blooming today.

Vertical Horizon looks nice. I picked it up this year. I hope it does as well here.

Vertical Horizon is beautiful, and all of your seedlings are too!

RE: Daylily Grab bag on Thursday

Very pretty. I like Sailing at Dawn. I think I may be at peak too. My daylilies are all doing very good this year. Last year we were in a drought and they didn't look good at all. I am really enjoying them this year.

Lots of nice seedlings, especially the Blue Hippo one. And yes, the Vertical Horizon looks very good.

RE: Daylily Grab bag on Thursday

Just re-checked my seedling map and #5 isn't a Johnny Cash seedling, It's out of a Linda Beck cross (actually makes more sense).

Edward, I do hope Vertical Horizon does well for you. I have some interesting seedlings from it, and it's handled our western PA winters very well without mulch protection.

Thanks to everyone who checked out my pics!

Love that Red Friday seedling.

RE: Daylily Grab bag on Thursday

Your seedlings are really nice, I'm particularly attracted to the Pink Lemonade one. I haven't had any interesting seedlings this year, most didn't bloom at all. Some of last years seedlings improved, but several of them didn't bloom.

You have really pretty seedlings! Especially like Blue Hippo and Pink Lemonade Party kids.

Seedlings look good. BLUE HIPPO seedling has a nice edge on it.

New to the daylily forum so forgive the ignorance. Would someone please explain to me the references to 'seedlings'? What is the (visual) difference between the daylily plant and the seedlings?


 o
RE: Daylily Grab bag on Thursday

You have some really pretty seedlings. Are you thinking any of them are good enough plants that you will register and introduce them? Which ones?

I like your Pink Lemonade and Red Friday seedlings best. I tried to use Red Friday both ways at least a dozen times this season and I don't think anything took with either pod or pollen.

RE: Daylily Grab bag on Thursday

oldbat2be.....there is no visual difference between daylily plants and seedlings. Seedlings are generally younger daylily plants that may or may not be registered. The seedlings I've posted here are over 3 years old (mostly from my own crosses), and are still being evaluated for registration. Seedlings can change a lot over a 3 year period (some for the better and some for the worse). Some will be eliminated due to poor bud count, scape too low, or buds too close together, etc. Pretty flowers are easier to get IMO than good plant habit. I have some I keep to use in my crosses that don't have the prettiest bloom, but have the ability to put a decent scape on plants they are crossed with. Example below.

This China Clipper seedling just started blooming yesterday. It has a pretty unremarkable flower, but I'm keeping it because of the scape. I will try to cross it with other registered cultivars or my select seedlings and see if I can get a prettier face on this one and keep that nice scape.

Below is a pic of the scape which is very sturdy, and averages 31.5" tall, 21 buds, and lots of branching.

daylilly99....Right now I have several Red Friday seedlings, 2 Pink Lemonade Party seedling, 2 Lillian's Alabama Sunrise seedling, and 1 Carol Todd seedling that I will likely register. I have yet to post pics of a few of those. The Lillian's Alabama Sunrise kids are HUGE....40" scapes, with blooms averaging around 6.5 - 7", 15-16 buds. I have no trouble spotting them as I look out across the seedling beds.

Red Friday has been a frustration for me as well....very poor pod parent, but when it does manage to set a pod for you, be sure you start those seeds. I've got some very nice seedlings from Red Friday. Funny story here is that in passing RF I pollinated it with something and was so sure it wouldn't take that I didn't bother to tag the cross. Right now it's got two small pods on it, but I'm not holding my breath. I've seen it start pods before and then abort them within a weeks time.
