Seedlings

The daylilies that were crossed in 2003 started blooming in 2004, and the results of the various crosses can be seen below. Those that show potential are given a name and shown on the top of the page. They get another year to prove themselves or be tossed out. So far, 19 have shown enough promise to give them a second year.

The ones that aren't worth keeping are the "Bad Seeds", either because they look too much like the parent or they don't have what we were looking for. Ones that were under observation that just didn't pan out still have their "Penny" name, but they've been moved to the other section "Goners".

We were hoping for some nice yellows, pinks, and reds. Parents included Ida's Magic, Lunar Max, Harvard Yard, Shrimp Cocktail-GN, and Seminole Blood.
