Good Evening Daylily Friends,
In the Greenhouse this morning one of the new friends I met was Grace Stamile's BLUE BEAT. It is a gorgeous blue eyed beauty. I was so struck by its appearance that I took my camera and took a picture. While many hybridizers want to create large flowers with large blue eyes, Grace always had the talent to keep them small. Then, I also have a daylily with a blue eye. It is a cross between the following plants: (Tet. Lavender Blue Baby x Tet. Crystal Blue Persuasion). It is only a three inch flower, and I had thought that it only had two way branching. I found out that I was wrong. It has multiple branching in the Greenhouse. Indeed, it has many qualities that I must use. So, I'am also going to use it to make other little blue eyed beauties. In short, I crossed my Seedling 9-111 with Grace's BLUE BEAT. I do not see a miss.
One other red that just caught my eye is a cross between my best purple that I have created, and a red seedling that I have. It is now called Seedling 1-320, and I'm showing a picture. I like the chalk eye, and the pins on the tips of each of the sepals. I am pleased that it has such a good color.
Well that is all for today. More tomorrow.
