warrior wisdomkathy, Yes I hybridize both irises and daylilies. Got started in 2009 when I found a bee pollinated iris pod, did research and when it sprouted, I was hooked.
I did sell most of my seelings last summer. I kept some to see what hey will do this summer. I may register them if worthy.
Below are 182 Daylily seedlings from 2012. On the right are iris seedlings. What is so fascinating is that each seed grown in the same pod will be a new and different variety never seen due to to many generations of genes that were bred into the parent plants.
To prove that point, all 4 of the seedlings below came from the same seed pod. They bloomed for the first time summer 2012. All but the first 2 I sold.
