Hemerocallis
« on: May 22, 2009, 08:13:55 PM »
Hi all, this is the first Hemerocallis that opens its lemon-scented flowers. It is a medium high plant with a long. about 20 days, blooming season.

I would have expected H. flava to flower weeks before in N. Italy. I started to flower here last Monday.
At the moment we have here between 15 an 20 C., but summer.... :-\

Another Hem opened today, Curt Hanson's 'Odds and Ends'.  Always floriferous and early blooming for me.  A favourite parent in my open form hybridizing program.

Some other plants have started blooming, but with the rain and cold weather of the last week, they look rather insipid, to be polite.  Here are shots from last season, as I doubt I will get others this year.

One good day of sun and I came home to some properly open blooms today.  These are a few diploids I have been working with.  The H. citrina hybrid blooms very early and is lightly fragrant, tall and well budded.  Also, the flower colour show lycopene pigment, which gives it a slightly melon tone.

The unknow plant from China was given to me by Jürg Plodeck in Switzerland.  He brought it back from Shanghai Botanical Garden.  It may be a hybrid.  A bi-tone, fragrant, spider form.  Could be a hybrid of citrina with fulva rosea....or not.  It is nocturnal blooming.

The white seedling is out of 'Prairie Blue-Eyes', but I lost the pollen parent label.  May be 'Dad's Best White' or 'Ice Carnival'.  PBE is known to throw a lot of almost-white kids.  Produces lots of flowers and multiple scapes per fan.

Jamie,

I rather like that last one.  Congratulations on a fine seedling!
Cheers.

This is a very dynamic seedling-  The petals are typically a bit more ruffled and longer, but the intense contrast makes it hard to miss in the garden.

After my 2 week hiatus in the USA, I came back to a garden full of flowers.  Here are a few blooming between the raindrops.  The first 6 are registered cultivars, while the last 4 are my seedlings.  As you can see, I prefer the spider and UF types, especially in diploid Hemerocallis

And now for some tetraploid hybrids.  For those that are not familiar with daylilies, the tetraploids are heavier, have brighter flowers, typically on robust plants.  Fringes and patterning are typical for tetraploids.

Jamie, sorry if I ask a question to which the answer is already given: what does UF mean, please?

Hi, Maggi,

UF is short for Unusual Form.  Yeah, sounds silly.  Apparently, most wanted to call them exotic forms, but the Amis found that too provocative! ::) ::) ::).  Maybe someone just misspelled it on the ballot! ;D ;D
