Hello Daylily Friends,
devotee might say to me, "Well Bill, you don't have many seedlings." I can only respond in the words that I recall from my good friend Larry Grace" "It isn't how many you grow; it is only a question of the parents that you used." My friend Larry is correct. If I had 10,000 seeds using RED VOLUNTEER and ORANGE VELVET as parents, it wouldn't matter. I would not make any progress. Progress is made using advances in hybridizing, and using converted plants. It is so good to look at the seedlings everyday and see them growing. It is a pleasure to look ahead to next April, and think about the new daylilies that will bloom.
