Hello Daylily Friends,
ave had only 10 to 12 buds on each scape. Nevertheless, it is truly an unusual daylily. I'm am hopeful that next spring we can find a way to get the genes from 11-322 into our program. I'm thinking about other daylilies that I could use to cross it with so as to continue to produce the "hose-in-hose" effect, as well as to also improve our branching and bud count, please let us know.
I must also say that Diana Rae created 11-322. I would not have crossed 1-300 with TET. DOUBLE OLD IVORY. Also, when 11-322 bloomed in the Greenhouse, it did not have teeth. Even if I had made the cross I would have tossed the seedling because the teeth and the hose-in-hose feature only appeared after 11-322 had grown outside. I would have been too quick on the trigger. Diana Rae is to be congratulated on the cross, and is also to be congratulated on keeping the cross.
More news soon. Happy Labor Day week-end!
