Daylily: This little corner of the garden really put on a show this year. F.Smith's 'DALE HENSLEY' (front left), Agin's 'LINDA BECK' (center) G.Pierce's 'RED BLOODED' (top center) and Morss's 'JUST LIKE CANDY' (top right). 'Linda Beck' has developed quite a clump, showing a lot of vigor for a southern plant. arrow down

Daylily: What's this?! A daylily growing next to a hosta? Well, yes. There is a zone in my garden where the amount of sunlight is just right for both to coexist happily. Emmerich's 'CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS' shares space with 'Charlie's Angels' (just a coincidence, I assure you!). arrow down

Daylily: Dan Bachman's 'THE CHILI MAN' continues to strut it's stuff for me. If I were a hybridizer, I'd be doing a lot of pollen dabbing onto it and from it. It is tall and sturdy with excellent branching/bud count. An undiscovered treasure? Judy Davisson's 'SULTRY GIRLS,' a star in its own right, looks rather small (it's not!) by comparison. arrow down

Daylily: The dreaded Purple Loosestrife throws in a welcome bit of lacy lavender to the color cornucopia. I have to watch carefully for volunteers each spring and remove them before they bloom. arrow down

Daylily: I'd like to share, with the Robins, one of my best and most favorite seedlings this year, RAV 17-008. It's out of my Lonesome Soldier X (Maddox Sdlg x Some Sweet Day). I can't say enough about the vigor of this plant, and the gorgeous bloom on top. This morning it presented me with 5, fully opened blooms on 1 scape, and 2 on another. I couldn't grab the camera fast enough! Oh, and the color holds well in the rain too! Anna's webpage is https://ravencroftcottage.com arrow down

Daylily: I'd like to share these 3 seedlings, one blooming today, with the Robin. It's their maiden bloom season, and they're showing me some nice stuff! The 1st one is a definite keeper for further evaluation. It's already showing me a very nice plant beneath that eyeliner pattern bloom. The cross for all 3 is Stardust Lady X (Backyard Friends x Violet Victory). arrow down

Daylily: Unusual form double seedling. The parentage is from using three of my introductions (( Tiger Whiskers x Pointer Sisters)X Dancing With Ellen). Maybe not a full double but it has many extra petaloids. None of the DLs used have a background with doubles in them (that I have found).

Daylily: I'd like to share this picture with the Robin. It's a seedling that Bob Faulkner gave me about 10 years ago. The bloom is about 4" and scapes about 20". It's an early bloomer but this year has been sending up a lot of reblooming scapes. I love it! So dainty looking. arrow down

Garden:Daylily: The "kids" from my 'Janice Brown' x 'Desdemona' crosses continue to intrigue me. So far, 4 of them have been consistently double on rebloom scapes. I'd like to show two of the sibs of my original picture that I sent in (June 27th). Did they just have to mature? (Kathy's Website is: http://www.naturesmelodynursery.com/kathy.html) arrow down
