Hello Daylily Friends,
My first selection this year is Seedling 3-300. I'm showing a picture. I am puzzled by this seedling. The cross is between my Seedling 1-300 (Wild Hair x Fantastic Fringe), as the pod parent, and pollen from my own CHILLED ORANGE SORBET. I don't understand what happened to the orange color from CHILLED ORANGE SORBET, and I don't understand what happened to the teeth that are on 1-300. I selected 3-300 because it is so tall with 4-way branching in the Greenhouse. The teeth may show up when it blooms again outside next year.
I have to tell you also about Paul Owen from North Carolina. He spoke last week-end at the Region 5 (Georgia) meeting in Macon, Georgia. Really enjoyed listening to Paul. He loves daylilies and so I can see that we are kindred souls. After listening to Paul's show I can also say that he knows how to be financially successful: Paul is very bright. I bought several of his flowers because they are beautiful, because they are dormant, and because Paul showed the branching on the flowers. Thanks Paul for coming to visit Region 5. Oh, let me also add that I purchased Stamile's CRAZY ARMS, from Tim Bell. Tim often sells plants at our Region 5 meeting to help benefit the Region. Thanks Tim for CRAZY ARMS. This will help me in working with spiders this coming spring.
I also have to tell about Little Lily Rae and her fingernails. They were getting a little long, and so Diana Rae took the clippers and cut them. Little Lily Rae did not like the experience. She complained for a few moments, but then it was all over. To make the situation better Diana Rae gave some "Puffs" to Little Lily Rae. This made everything good. Lily Rae loves the Puffs. She will eat them and have the best time chewing them with her new set of pure white teeth. I'm showing two pictures.
Looking forward to seeing more and more blooms.
