Daylily: Seedling 129-19 selected last year and transplanted last fall. It is a dormant diploid, has a distinct six inch bloom with white teeth on a dark purple flower. It starts to bloom early and continues to bloom with the lates. Since it is so new, I don't know the ultimate height the plant will achieve. It has three way branching, widely spaced and wide angled. There are many buds but the exact count unknown. arrow down

Daylily: These are two dip seedlings, both 'Evidence of Aliens' x 'Shards of Kryptonite'. They both have large green throats. The first is a soft pink. The other 3 pictures are the same flower. Some days it is almost white, other days a kind of buff color, and sometimes almost a pinkish beige. They both have 5-6 inch blooms. The pink has 2 or 3 branches with anywhere from 8 to 20 buds (usually the lower number) and the off white/beige one has 2 branches and 8-16 buds. They have the heavy substance of Evidence of Aliens.

Daylily: Despite being only twenty-eight inches tall this 7 1/2 inch bloom that is dark red with dark orange undertones and a dark cherry halo was a standout in the seedling bed today. And something about including only a part of it in the photograph seemed "just right". arrow down

Daylily: Finally here three days ago after a month long dry spell rain fell onto our gardens at our cottage. This was the first year for seedling bloom since the daylilies were moved from home to the lake here. Close to an inch of rain real woke up the seedling bed with wonderful color. This one was a tie for favorite of the day. It is the second bloom on this seedling planted June 2019. It is 34 inches tall so far and the 7 3/4 inch polychrome bloom has those wonderful thick petals that can take the full sun all day or a major thunderstorm and still look fresh. arrow down

Daylily:Diploid Seedling [Charting New Waters x (Noe Claire x Shards of Kryptonite)] - 30", 6.75" Lavender cream blend with chartreuse throat extending onto petals. This is my seedling. The petals on this seedling are wrinkled/puckered similar to a seersucker fabric. The substance is good even on a hot, sunny day. I have raised lots of seedlings but have never seen another with a petal surface like this. I am wondering if anyone else has ever seen another daylily with a surface like this. arrow down

Daylily:DELIBERATE PACE (Whatley 2000) 7.5, 28, Sev, ML, RE. Apricot orange blend with a slight rose edge above a green throat. (Sdlg x Solar Music). I have two plants labeled "Deliberate Pace" and they resemble each other very much but bloom at different times. One came from Oscie Whatley's own garden after his death in 2005. The label at the base of the plant carried only a seedling number that corresponded to his registration information. I assumed I had the true plant until two years ago when I completed an analysis of Oscie's notebooks, price lists, and pictures. My daylily seldom matched his picture in form. So I ordered another plant for comparison and found that it bloomed Midseason going past peak bloom, while my original plant didn't start to bloom until around July 4, which would result in a ML designation. This would not be the only cultivar that Oscie mistook for a sibling in his garden. Threshold to Blue was another one that will probably never be resolved. I think Oscie photographed one Deliberate Pace and took data from the other, thinking they were identical. In my garden both are fabulous! But I think the one I took from his garden was a sibling. This picture and many taken before it match Oscie pictures. Both plants set pods and make great seedlings. What a bounty. (Michael's Website is: http://www.dayilylay.com) arrow down

Daylily:THRESHOLD TO BLUE (Whatley 2003) 5.5, 25, Sev, M. Lavender blue self. (Sdlg X tet. Come See). Oscie called this his "blue daylily" and he thought it so valuable that he grew it in a pot and moved it indoors over night to insure against garden theft, which I don't think he ever experienced. He divided his plant and sent most of it to a major nursery for propagation and sales. In 2005, the year he died, he told me he "lost" his blue daylily. Squirrels had taken the plastic label out of the ground and carried it off. That summer, with what little energy he could muster in the afternoons, he found and labeled two plants as "Threshold to Blue." The family gave me both plants as a thank-you for liquidating his garden. The following year I realized I had two different plants. One was a squishy evergreen that opened poorly in the morning and the other was a good semi-evergreen whose flowers looked wonderful! The evergreen would never have been registered, but after noon both plants looked pretty much the same. Oscie's notebooks showed that he set pods on Threshold to Blue. I have never been able to, and the pollen is nearly impossible. Finally I sent a piece of my plant to Jamie Gossard for analysis and he informed me it was primarily a diploid with a miniscule percentage of tetraploid pollen. He said this is one of the things that happens with conversions. I don't hybridize with Threshold to Blue at all, but keep it as a reminder of my friend and mentor and of his many quests. arrow down

Daylily:BIGGER'S BETTER (Whatley 2003) 7, 28, Sev, M, 12 buds, two branches, fertile both ways. Red self above a gold throat. I began my hybridizing career 25 years ago with Whatley cultivars as my foundation plants and since finishing my reports on his garden notebooks (they are in the Library section at my web site, www.daylilylay.com) I have come back to his cultivars to match them up in ways that may result in a few thrills around here. Bigger's Better seldom looks as classy as my photo from this morning. I think it needs a strong shot of heat and humidity to look this great. I love this when it's strutting its stuff like this! arrow down
