I have a lot of parent plants of plants that have already been hybridized, I am not a pro so this could one of yours one mine or anybodies. Grandma really liked it and it has a nice fluorescence about it in evening light. I just expected to much after such a long wait to see the bloom.
here's a better pic.

Hi There

Are you saying you pollinated a daylily plant and this was a seedling? Am a little confused.

Thanks!

YES That is what I am saying. I tried several pollinating crosses this season recently also.Only like as before, mostly those pollinating attempts are from plants that have already been cross pollinated and named by someone previously.
The only seed pods have developing are the parent plants of peach's and dreams(?), it will be interesting to see what happens. Only a little backyard fun with the flowers!

So I take it you were expecting the flower to be red??? You won't necessarily get what you think you should get. I have crossed 2 purples and got a white flower or two pinks and got yellow flowers.

Hi...I was going to say the same thing as Cindy. There is a whole lot of research to be done when it comes to hybridizing genetics, but a whole lot of fun to be a backyard hybridizer! Keep plugging along but don't be taken aback at what you get...it's part of the game, the anticipation of seeing what your efforts produce!
