FAME
SHORES OF TIME
Breeding goal: A dark pink gold edged that resists northern winters.
Expectations: I only have 4 seeds, but both parents are dormant! That's why I wanted this cross. Update: These four seedlings are the biggest ones by far, and I planted them mid-winter. They are impressively husky, all four of them.
Number of seeds: 4
Germinated: -
Survived winter: -
Runts discarded: -

Notes: July 5. FFO. Given that this was my most vegetatively vigorous and trunk-like seedlings by far, this ugly flower sure is a disappointment.

daylily progeny
Notes: July 8. Very different from FFO, but can't say the changes are an improvement.

daylily progeny
Notes: July 10. FFO. This one is infinitely better than the first.

daylily progeny
Notes: July 14. FFO. Too bad the flower isn't large; this one has an instant rebloom scape coming up, something I've never witnessed in these cold parts where I live.
