This slide show includes seedlings from the last couple of years in the seedling beds.



NEWS AND NOTES...HEALTH ISSUES WERE THE NAME OF THE GAME IN 2023 as heart, kidney, blood pressure, lung infections and Covid all impacted the daylily season. I made a lot of crosses but wasn't able to line out all new intros or older introductions so at least some plants sent out this year will be taken from larger clumps while others won't be available for another year or so. Our 6 new intros for this year are excellent plants here in zone 6 northern WV and should do well a couple zones south and at least one zone north of our garden. If you have any questions about plants, you can contact me through this site (CONTACT US above) or with the email address listed below. Have a great bloom season and happy gardening!

Tetraploid, (Vision Seeker x Orange City), 30", 5.25", EM, Semi-Evergreen, 4 way branching, 22 buds. Fever Dream is ALL about color and garden impact. I guarantee you'll notice this one from 40 yards away and it passes on stunning color to seedlings. Fertile both ways, but I don't get many pods from it. Excellent parent.

$100 - double fans


Tetraploid, (Desire Of Nations x Diviner’s Handbook), 36”, 6”, EM, Semi-Evergreen, 4-7 way branching, 22-32 buds Easily fertile both ways, wonderful parent that is behind many of my best purple seedlings and selects. Finest purple in my nursery!

$100 - double fans


Tetraploid, (Master Harper x Vision Seeker). 35”, 6.5”, EM, Semi-Evergreen, 5-7 way branching, 25-32 buds, reblooms every year here, fertile both ways but pods are difficult, small, and produce few seeds, good pollen parent.

$100 - double fans


Diploid, (Under The Ink x Dream Sequence) X (Under The Ink x Chaotic Design), 36”, 6”, M, Dormant, 3-5 way branching, 18-25 buds. Easily fertile both ways, sets almost every pod attempt,  wonderful parent, very vigorous, clumps up quickly and sets scapes a different heights in the clump. Pods aren't large but easily produce 20+ seeds or more.

$100 - double fans


Diploid, (Under the Ink × ((Artisan's Touch x Frequent Flyer) x Ida Mae Norris)), 36”, 4.75”, EM, Dormant, 3-4 branches, 20-26 buds. Fertile both way, pods take effort here…full sib to Ring Nebula…quickly makes a graceful clump. I didn't manage to get this one lined out last fall so plants will be taken from clumps and likely will have more than 2 fans.

$75 - double fans


Diploid, (Chaotic Design x Only In Dreams) 38”, 6.75”, M, Semi-Evergreen, 4-6 way branching, 22-30 buds. Pollen fertile only for me so far, blooms on a tall, wonderfully branched scape and produces lots of proliferations.  Makes a stunning tall clump in the garden,

HAWKING RADIATION - tetraploid - (Chantry Chapel x Desire Of Nations), height 34 in., bloom 6 in., season Mid, Dormant, buds 30, branches 3-5, yellow green throat.  What a cross and what a parent.  Hawking Radiation was the best of 4 select seedlings from a cross of 11 seedlings total.  It's tall, rugged, fertile and many of the seedlings out of it "jump the fence" being even better in quality than the parents.
