A Tale of Two Brothers

May 2nd, 2012

The daylily season is about to be in full swing and i thought I would tell you all a “tale of two brothers.” The two plants I am going to show you are both from a cross of “Leprechaun Eye” and “Heaven All Day.” Most of the children in this cross have been cream or yellow,even my introduction “Mud Creek Sunshine” comes from this cross. The art of genetics presented itself this morning as I was walking around my garden. I was hoping to carry the red eye in “Leprechaun Eye” into the self of ‘Heaven All Day.”I wasn’t getting the results I wanted . The plant I saw this morning was the closest I got in the cross, but what interested me was the clear example of how genetics work. It is so interesting to see how a pinkish flower with an eye and a nearly white flower can be of the same lineage. It is truly amazing to see how different siblings really can be!

2011 Introductions

This is the first seedling to bloom this season. It has three way branching and is 5-6 inches across. The scape height is about 24 inches tall. The plant is a cross between Paige Duggan and Heaven All Day. Pictures of these plants can also be found on my webpage. I hope you enjoy the new seedling, as well as LV-005! I really like the way the new flower lays flat, as well as its shape, branching and height.

I am thinking of naming it after an orphan I met while in Guatemala.

A Pleasent Surprize

April 17th, 2009

Lately, I have been having squirrel problems. They have been digging around my plants’ roots. While going out to take a picture of my garden and seedling for the blog, I saw a hero. As I was walking to the back of the property I heard a “,Cah-Cahhh.” Swooping down in front of me was this, wonderful, squirrel eating hawk:
