Daylilies Born to Be Wild, Bowtie Affair, Nile Princess, Blue Jay Tapestry

---Update: Born to Be Wild Seed Pods---
Very fertile plant! Had to limit the number of pods
on this plant as it was a new plant last fall. Didn't
want to over stress it.

Daylilies Home of the Free and Born to be Wild

---Home of the Free---
Grace-L., 2012 (Cimarron Rose x Scarlet Angel)
E EV RE 6 inches 

Love, love, love this plant. Stocky scapes,
wonderful foliage, great bud count and 
branching, and gorgeous blossoms that
do not fade or wilt from the sun. Home of the
Free is by far the best all around daylily that
I have ever grown. This plant is fertile both
ways, and I plan to use it in several crosses.

Update: Super pod parent. Have many seedlings
with both pod and pollen.
---Born to be Wild---
Pierce 2011 [((Calling All Angels x Sue Brown) x
Mountain Wildflower)) x Fringy))]
EM SEV RE 6.5 inches

Love this one too!! 
Update: Very easy pod and pollen. Have many

Daylilies Bowtie Affair, Stenciled Infusion, and Spinefeld

---Bowtie Affair---

Pierce 2014

Now it's getting there! Such a gorgeous 
complicated pattern. On some days the base
color is much lighter. Today was overcast.
After the rain, the pattern practically covered
the entire flower. So very lovely.
---Stenciled Infusion---

Pierce 2014

Such clean coloring and big. This bloom is
7 inches. Beautiful. Notice how the eye pattern
accentuates and outlines the edge of the petals.
---Stenciled Infusion---
---Spinefeld---

A wonderful treat in the toothy category.

Photo taken before the rain. It's not quite 
bloomed out. This is the Tet conversion of the 
Diploid Peppermint Delight, and the
blossom is 7 inches.
---Tet. Peppermint Delight---

Photo taken during the rain, and oh, my, how we
needed the rain. Daylilies bloom so much bigger
and better after a nourishing rain.
