Nina Waters Josette, 80 buds is a very big number. That is wonderful . I have one seedling that makes 45 buds. It is a tet. I have two dip seedlings that make 40 buds.
I know that Becki Pavlik here at mydaylilies is very interested in making daylilies with large number of buds. Maybe you could speak with her. Do you have a picture of the daylily with 80 buds?121 days ago
Mike Derrow Chris, my garden is in the northern panhandle of WV, about 20 miles south of I-70. Germination rates were down this year but no where near what you've experienced. I usually get in the low to mid 90% range - this year it was definitely closer to 80%. Some crosses had empty black husks in the pods, others had firm seeds that didn't germinate at all. SOLI DEO GLORIA - what a bloom - the scapes are short but the blooms are beautiful with perhaps the best blue purple I've ever seen - they are large and sunfast, too. And though the scapes are shorter than I prefer, they are well branched for me and the plant has instant rebloom and good fertility, too. WATER DROPS was terrible the first year it was here - the last 2, it's been very good. BLUEGRASS MEMORIES is a star performer here with vigor, rebloom and fertility. The startling colors of BM are sunfast, too. I was lucky and got pods on both SDG and BM with ONE FOR STEVE pollen - am excited to see what shakes out of those crosses.126 days ago
