The first AHS National Convention that Diana and I attended was at Jacksonville, Florida. We saw truly outstanding gardens. It was a magnificent convention, and I remember going to the garden of Dave Talbott. He had a new seedling that had bloomed, and he said that the name would be CARIBBEAN WHITNEY LYNN. I had no way of securing access to the plant, and as I went about my own daylily work, I lost interest because I couldn't convert plants. CARIBBEAN WHITNEY LYNN is a diploid. Then, when I saw the converted plant that Larry was growing, I obviously had to ask about it. Larry said that he had converted it years ago, and that I could have the plant. I was thrilled! I took the plant home, and this past spring I made new seeds using TET. CARIBBEAN WHITNEY LYNN as a pollen parent. In my garden I now have seedlings growing from this cross. Thanks Larry for allowing me to have this magnificent plant.
