Nice job Ditch
Will surely come in handy to prevent duplication as we now have close to 7 pages of hybridizers.

You're a saint for doing this! I was really getting tired of flipping through pages to make sure I didn't duplicate. I ended up duplicating anyway. I'm going to go wash dishes now. It doesn't require reading or thinking.

First: Thanks for the complements. A list was something that I wanted, but also figured everyone else would like as well. I added the links because, while knowing which hybridizers had already been posted helped prevent duplicates, it was still a pain to FIND each thread once there were so many of them. :-)

Second: The two incorrect links Tree_Climber noted have been corrected. Please do not hesitate to let me know where else I might have goofed. There were a lot of them and I confess that I have not checked them all.

I will continue to update as long as people add more hybridizers. It makes the most sense to me to just edit the original list (I have a master sheet on my computer) instead of making a new one each time new threads are posted. Please let me know if you guys want it different.

Hi, I absolutely agree that this thread is a fantastic resource - which I would have *loved* seeing when I first joined DG - that needs to become a "Sticky" at some point. I think that the question may be: when? Once it's an offical "Sticky", then Laura - who's been good enough to create, control and update it - will no longer be able to do so. Laura, I personally think it's your call! Bless you for the work involved! And thanks :)) Elizabete

Thanks for all the good words everyone. I have enjoyed the results along with all of you.

Well, I certainly would not mind this becoming a Sticky, but it is up to the Administration. Now, I could be wrong, but I think that if just the link to this thread is added to a sticky, the original post can still be edited by me. I know that I have seen recent posts added to other Sticky threads like that and I have even replied to one of those myself. I checked and I can edit that post, so I suspect I could still update this one. The question would be how often it was updated by me.

I do know that they do not like to make stickys of lists from outside Dave's as they have no control of those links and how they are maintained, unlike links to threads on Dave's like this one (hope that made sense).

This is a story about my meeting Mr. Moldovan. A friend and I went to his place in Avon, Ohio - just west of Cleveland quite a few years ago. While there, Mr. Modovan show us m-a-n-y of his newest creations - most were not going to go further than his "back yard", but I spotted a fabulous pink lily and asked about it. He smiled and said the perennial people had been there earlier, and they liked it, too. However, it was not one of his favorites because at this time he was determined to get a silver, ruffled edge on the lilies. We bought some lilies and then he gave me a piece of the pink lily. It was not named and he said I could have, and I could call it anything - just not Steve"s Choice. He was saving that name for a future lily. So happily growing and thriving in my garden is "Not Steve's Choice" as I call it, and I always remember Mr. Moldovan, his lily garden, passion, and warmth. ;0)

My first daylily person that I met was a Mr McPherson here in Abbeville Louisiana. He had been an active camelia hybridizer but realized that as he aged it took too long to see his results --so thus he went to daylilys. I might
mention he developed Agnes Godchaux Camelia which is still known and that was many many years ago. A woman from Alexandria was offering "MRMAC" $100 dollars for THE TWENTY THIRD PSALM but he refused her as he was going to use it as a parent.(Just a sideline note)

Just got to see this today love the story about Not Steve's Choice!
Great job getting the hybridizer list together. I grow a lot of McEwen daylilies and Reckamps and am just getting a Barth daylily called Penobscot.

Oddball that I am I wanted to see in real life what some of the old daylilies looked like so got the ancestors of some of my favorite McEwen dayliles which includes Bold Ruler, Frances Fay, Northbrook Star, Commandment, Magic Wand, but can't seem to find Chetco or Cornerstone, Paradise Beach, Grand Parade, or Cinnabar yet.

DON8T3 wrote:Guys-A new question--Is it ethical to sell seedling (fans) of a cross as THE cross?

Not sure of your meaning. Usually when someone refers to a seedling it is a plant that has been grown from seed and is not registered. What you may not do is cross the parents of a plant that you like (for example: ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER which is a cross of Edge of Your Seat x Mystery Man) and make your own seeds from those parents and grow those seeds and pass them off as the named cultivar Actions Speak Louder. You will get plants that you could register if any are nice, but they will NOT be the same plant as the registered Actions Speak Louder since daylilies do not breed true. Crossing the same two parents will not give you the same offspring.

That does not sound like what you really mean.

Are you asking about increase fans from a plant? IF that is what you mean then yes, all increase fans from a plant are the same. In other words, you buy 2 fans of a registered daylily, plant it and in several years you now have 6 fans. All 6 of those fans are the same plant and you may sell them as that plant.

No, you can only sell them as seedlings. Daylily hybrids don't come true from seed. Not even when you cross the same plant with it's self. Each seedling from those seeds will look different. You can still sell them though. You just have to call them seedlings. Lots of folks like to buy them though.

Please add Bloomingfields Farms, Gaylordsville, CT. I have just visited there and found warm, wonderful, passionate people there. What a great experience!
