Fragrant, 15 buds, 4 branches. Many strong scapes and blooms for almost a month. It is almost luminescent across the garden, shown here holding its own with Ruby Spider. Unfortunately the hybridizing tag was lost, so we leave it to our imagination! arrow down

Daylily: Here's my future registration, RAV 18-002, out of (Persian Priest x Lucifer's Revenge) X Rebecca's Curls. BC average 14 -15. Not bad for a TET and I think anything higher would ruin the appearance of the blooms. It just works with this one. Anna's webpage is https://ravencroftcottage.com arrow down

I have an intro out of it, with improved BC, RavenCroft Firestarter. arrow down

Daylily: These are photos of my favorite 6 first-year-to-bloom seedlings that put on quite a show this summer. Some are still at it with rebloom - the white edged red is one of them. They are 1.5 years old, started indoors Feb 2019. Sorry I cannot share easy parent info on each as they come from years of seedling to seedling breeding. I look forward to them all getting even better as they mature. Ginny's webpage is http://www.gardenpathperennials.com arrow down

Daylily: This seedling is a perfect example of why branching and bud count isn't all that important. Hybridized by my friend Barb Pendergrass, this Bob Marley x Wispy Rays cross has 31 inch scapes, 6.5 inch blooms, 3 way branching (and by branching I mean a terminal W), and usually between 8 and 11 buds. But it throws up tons of scapes, and I think it's fabulous. Randy's webpage is http://www.pendergriffsouth.com arrow down

Daylily: DAPPLED DYNAMO (Derrow, 2013) - height 30 in.(76 cm), bloom 2 in.(5 cm), season EM, Rebloom, Dormant, Diploid, 20 buds, 3 branches, Very light creamy yellow petals with lavender to purple specks, dots, dashes and stripes of color, yellow throat, trumpet shaped, triangular blooms, multiple rounds of bloom. ((Red Spire × sdlg) × (Indian Giver × Pin Stripes)). Mike Derrow's Dappled Dynamo has been amazing this season. Only its second year in the ground here, easily 38 inches tall, most of the scapes have 6 way "candelabra branching" and 30 buds, give or take a couple. For those of you who live in the south this may not be a big deal but for my zone 5 Michigan garden this is unreal. Small photo below of the bloom, and another that shows the scape. This one truly is a dynamo! arrow down

Daylily: WOODLANDS MEADOWLARK (Carlson-A., 2016)- height 54 in.(137 cm), bloom 6 in.(15 cm), season MLa, Semi-Evergreen, Diploid, 45 buds, 4 branches, Spider Ratio 4.20:1, Bright yellow with lighter midrib, upward facing bloom with fulvous or russet petal obverse. (Poinsettia × Maximum Warp). There's no official entry for the term "candelabra branching", but it's pretty much self descriptive, with the branching, resembling the arms of a candelabra. Pretty much resembles a tree. My intros from using Poinsettia (Stout) have it. Here's an example. You can see how it is way over the basic 2 or 3 laterals. I can't say for sure, but I believe candelabra branching is mostly found on taller plants, that have the height to accommodate it. Anna's webpage is https://ravencroftcottage.com arrow down

Daylily: Sdlg #1: This is from sdlg parents, but has Interrupted By Splendor, Clear Fork, Dangling Participle, White Eyes Pink Dragon and High Water Mark in it. Stats: 36" tall, 6.5" bloom, 3 branches, 27 buds. This seedling took four bloom years to get to this stage. I almost tossed it after the 2nd bloom year because it didn't seem to be living up to the promise of the 1st bloom year. Glad I didn't! I really like its color and I love it when there are two colors in a watermark. Held up well during the cold spring and sweltering summer, so I'm thinking this is a keeper.

Daylily: Sdlg #2: This is from Snowflake Empress and Loch Ness Monster. I was lucky to get the color from the pod parent and the graceful flower form from the pollen parent. The stats for now are 24" tall 5.5" bloom, 2 branches and 15 buds. This poor little seedling, a short dip, has always gotten lost in my garden which is full of big, tall tets. Always overshadowed - I'd find it struggling to survive in the weeds and the shadows when I had forgotten about it. So this year I made a special spot for it with plenty of room and plenty of light and it finally came to life, even in this challenging growing season. I suspect (hope) it will be taller with more branching and bud count in years to come. arrow down

Daylily: Seedling 1520B: Dragon Nation X One Hot Mama has 7.25 inch blooms on 34 inch scapes with two-way branching and 14 buds plus instant rebloom scapes. I took these stats this summer under drought conditions. We received less than 11 inches of year-to-date rain, and I watered the yard only twice. It begins blooming in early midseason, bloomed over a long period of time this summer, is a hardy evergreen in our garden, and will most likely be a future registration.
