Hello Daylily Friends,
supper, Larry and Cindy prepared "Cornish Hens." Larry cooked them on the Grill, and they were great.
How do you like Larry's Garden hat? He needed that hat on Thursday in Alabama where the temperature was 92 degrees.
Well there is so much that I could report about in Larry's garden, but I will just focus on two daylilies. The first daylily is Seedling 554-10. It is just a fabulous red. Indeed, I have never seen a red with the color of 554-10. It has wonderful branching, and a wonderful eye, and a deep green throat. It is pod and pollen fertile, and I predict that it will be an introduction for which there will be high demand. Finally, I would note that 554-10 is a late bloomer; it will extend our gardening seasons. The second daylily that I particularly noticed is 330-8. I understand from Larry that it is pod and pollen fertile, and I wish that I had been able to grow this beauty. One of the parents is 998-6, which I was fortunate to grow, and this is probably where 330-8 gets its chartreuse edge. I would highly recommend the purchase of Larry's Seedlings 554-10 and 330-8.
Thanks again to Larry and Cindy for their friendship, and for that wonderful Cornish Hen supper. And their home made Lemonade made everything taste even better!
More daylily news coming soon.
