The first time Ive ever seen this flower.. frankly its wacky, lol.

I dont know to use it , discard it, or let it be for 2 more years and see what it does..

Here is a picture of two sibs... to show you how close they look to each other, its the leslee renee x ss cross, the one on the left is the superiour one, it can have thicker edging in the right days, has a superiour eyezone, lays flater, the one on the right is very similiar, but doesnt always look as pretty. I have alot of pods on the one on the right this year.

The cosmic oddessey x jitterbug blues, it hasnt taken pods yet, but ive used its pollen around, its really young though, so it still might set in the future.

I don't know I like the first one and would give it some more time, your third seedling to me is a stunner.

I'd also give the first one another year.

Is your second seedling comparison pic top heavy in buds?

I agree, the last seedling pic would be my pick. Love the pencil edging of the two different colors.

I agree. I think that first one deserves time to "settle in".

That last seedling is a beauty.

That last seedling is striking. I'm not that up on eyed daylilies so I can't say that if it is distinctive or not, but it is at least both unusual (not just another pink (not dissing your pink seedling!)) and pretty. Congrats!

The last one is only a improvement if you consider a white base superiour to the mauve one that cosmic shows.. otherwise its pretty similiar. I think it contrasts more with the white base , but it wouldnt differ enough to do anything with other then breed with it.

Its pretty subtle but its a triple colour edge with the dark purple, light purple and fine gold edge.

I understand about the pinks, but a friend of mine raved about the power of leslee renee to start to take blue eyes, thats my plan , if I can get a crop based out of my heaviest pie crusting edges with it, If I get one showing that same familiar eye zone, with a heavier pie crusting, I will then go back into my blue eyed lines. Ive tried it already it hasnt done what I wanted yet, but I will continue trying. (though the seedling I got, is still wonderful from that try, it just isnt the heavy blue eye with a pink wash background Im looking for, I have no doubt people will be years ahead of me before I get one that I want, but thats ok, Im also breeding for cold zones, or colder zones I should say)
