Multi-Ring Pileup (Marchant 2017)

Dip, Dor, RE, 28-30 inch scapes, 4 way branching, 20 buds, 8 inch flower, UF

(Live Long and Prosper) x (Leprechaun's Curls x Kaleidoscopic Intrigue)

This beauty was named by Brenda Shoberg from Minnesota.  Brenda expressed her delight in the beauty of this patterned superstar.  It came through her Minnesota winter with little to no snow cover and demonstrated more branching and buds than it does here in north Georgia.  This one is the first introduction from the magnificent Live Long and Prosper.  It is a huge cream pink flower with a startling green throat that harkens back to Rose F Kennedy.  The patterning can vary from outstanding to amazing.  I have seen as many as 12 rings of color.  This one is VERY limited due to the long waiting list.  It doesn't make huge plants but the foliage is in perfect proportion to the scape.  I have not attempted to set pods on it but have bloomed some awesome kids that will be future introductions.  LIMITED!!  $150 SF or $200 DF (SOLD OUT)








Falling Waters (Marchant 2017)

Dip, DOR, RE, 28 inch scape, 4 way branching, 20 buds, 7 inch flower, UF

(Starman's Quest x Rose F Kennedy)

This is the second of four intros from the 200+ seedlings that I bloomed from this cross.  This is the greenest of the lot.  It is a beautiful purple flower with a blue-purple eye above a HUGE green throat that covers most of the petal surface.  It has been a phenomenal parent.  It is fertile both ways.  This one is very limited and SOLD OUT except for the couple that I have held back for full collection orders.  If you want to get this one and aren't on the waiting list, I will be glad to add your name for it when it becomes available.  $150 SF  (SOLD OUT)







Dancing in the Fountain (Marchant 2017)

Dip, DOR, RE, 29 inch scape, 4 way branching, 20 buds, 8 inch flower, UF

(Starman's Quest x Rose F Kennedy)




Beautiful purple with a gray-blue eye zone above a huge green throat.  Another that is in the background of many of my future patterns.  Easily fertile both ways.  This is the largest of the siblings from this cross.  Limited!!  $100 SF





Galactic Starburst (Marchant 2017)

Dip, DOR, RE, 29 inch scape, 4 way branching, 20 buds, 7 inch flower, UF

(Starman's Quest x Rose F Kennedy)

This is the final introduction from this very prolific cross of about 200 seedlings.  This one was also my father's favorite.  It is a gray purple with a dark purple eye zone with a green throat that creates a starburst on the eye zone.  It has midribs that bisect the eye zone on the petals but don't extend beyond the eye.  It is easily fertile both ways and in the background of future introductions.  $100 SF  SOLD OUT!






Academy Fire (Marchant 2017)

Dip, DOR, RE, 28 inch scape, 4 way branching, 20 buds, 7 inch flower

(Sdlg x White Magician) x Going Home to Georgia

Wow!!  What a standout in the garden.  This one has been on several wish lists since I first posted photos of it on mydaylilies.com back in 2012.  I finally have enough to release.  It is a gorgeous bright orange with a red eye zone bisected with a midrib.  It has a wonderful green throat.  It has been difficult to capture the true beauty with a camera.  You won't be able to walk by this one without it catching your attention.  Easily fertile both ways.  $75 SF  SOLDOUT!!







Min Alskade Far (Marchant 2017)

Dip, DOR, RE, 27 inch scape, 5 way branching, 24 buds, 6.5 inch flower

(Starman's Quest x White Magician) x Chaotic Design

This flower was chosen by one of my friends, Terry Salasin, to honor her father, a distinguished veteran.  The names means "My Dear Father" in Swedish.  It is a pale icy lavender flower with a faint blue-gray eye.  It has a small silver edge that outlines both the petals and sepals.  The center is set off with a bright green throat.  It is fertile both ways.  I didn't begin using it until this year when it hit me that there are patterned genetics locked up in the flower.  Imagine putting a beautiful pattern on this cool flower!!  I am anxious to see the kids in the coming years.  $75 SF









Look At That! (Marchant 2017)

Tet, Sev, RE, 29 inch scape, 3-4 way branching, 15 buds, 5 inch flower

(Get Jiggy x Waterdrops)

This flower has been quite a mystery to me.  The first two photos show the flower on the first scapes and the second two photos show the flower on rebloom.  I love it either way and it gives you two looks for the garden.  A cream pink with a purple eye and edge.  The eye zone is extremely patterned on the first scapes and is broken with large white bands.  It is fertile both ways.  I will see the first kids in the upcoming season.  $75 DF








Double Peach Cobbler (Marchant 2017)

Tet, Sev, RE, 35 inch scape, 3 way branching, 15 buds, 6 inch flower

(Viva Glam Girl x Double Explosion)

This is a full sibling to Iridescent Splendor which has been soldout since its introduction in 2015.  This one is a bit smaller but just a beautiful.  It has a variable form as can be seen in the photos.  A pink flower with a rose eye zone.  Petals usually recurve and the sepals stick straight out.  Should be a grand parent for tet UF doubles.  I have never been able to set pods but the pollen is great.  100% double.  Very Limited  $100 SF  SOLD OUT!!








Southern Sunrise (Marchant 2017)

Tet, Sev, RE, 32 inch scape, 4-5 way branching, 25 buds, 6 inch flower

(Susan Pritchard Petit x Dagny Hooks)

Oh la la!!  At look at that scape!!!  A cream pink/yellow blend with a small gold edge.  This one shows both peony and hose in hose flowers depending on the day.  It is easily fertile both ways and has been a fantastic parent.  This is the kind of scape that I want to see on all tet doubles.  It is 100% double.  $100 SF  SOLDOUT!!







Stir It Up (Marchant 2017)

Tet, Sev, Re, 32 inch scape, 3 way branching, 15 buds, 6 inch flower, UF

(Viva Glam Girl x Barry Goldwater)

I think that this is an improvement on my Viva Glam Girl.  I am trying to really get the UF tets bigger and twistier.  I have lots of futures coming that have those features.  A peach bloom with a rose and pink patterned eye.  The edges are serrated and should bred well with toothies.  The segments are pinched and crispate.  It looks much larger than it really is.  Very heavy substance and stay gorgeous all day.  100% double.  Fertile both ways but pollen is easier.  Limited!!  (Sold Out)










Splendid Sarah (Marchant)

Tet, DOR, RE, 30 inch scape, 3 way branching, 15 buds, 6 inch flower

(Sara Marchant x Ruckus)

You like teeth?  Here are teeth!!  This gorgeous cream yellow has huge, jagged teeth on the petals and sepals.  It also has a dark green throat and the petal edges are darker.  I have not bred with this one since I have stopped working with toothy single daylilies.  With Sara Marchant genetics, this one should go with all colors in breeding.  This one is named to honor my first principal, Sarah Lunsford.    $100 DF











Stimulation (Marchant 2017)

Tet, DOR, Re, 24 inch scape, 5 way branching, 25 buds, 5 inch bloom

(Dancing Elf x Ruckus)

I bloomed about 200 seedlings from a cross of Jamie Gossard's "Dragonfly" series crossed to Ruckus.  I was going for tall and well branched scapes with toothy flowers.  Out of the 200 kids, I got lots of tall and branched but only one seedling with teeth.  It was the shortest at only 24 inches.  But it was covered with tentacles and long shards and teeth.  This is it.  I think that it is super cute.  It has short arching foliage just perfect for the scapes and flower size.  It is a lemon yellow that sometimes has a bronze blush on the petals.  And the edge is just covered it the "stuff".  It is extremely pod fertile just like its mother.  Makes LOTS of pods.  $75 SF

DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT
 
(BLUE GOBLIN x tetra OUT OF THE BLUE)
 
This was the daylily that won the prestigious King of the Hill award on the mydaylilies site in 2014.  It will show more patterning when the weather is cooler and gets more blue as the temperatures get into the 90s.  I wanted to show several of its faces here. 
 
Lavender pink bloom with a large patterned eye of baby blue outlined in purple.  The purple continues as an edge around the petals.  In cool weather, the pattern can be quite dramatic with large areas of white.  The throat is green with a dark green heart.  Fertile both ways.
 
TET, SEV, 24", 5", M, RE, 4 way branching, 20 buds
 
$300 SF but already sold out
 
 
 
 
 


 
DRUID CITY DEBUTANTE

((COLLECTOR'S CHOICE x LIGHT YEARS AWAY) x PRECIOUS CANDY)) x FRINGY
 
 
A southern fancy face on a dormant plant.  A gorgeous light pink bloom with an ornate gold edge.  At times, the edge can be extremely fancy with angel wings and pillowing.  It also has a nice green throat.  The branching is fantastic.  It is fertile both ways.

TET, DOR, 29", 5.5", M, RE, 4-5 way branching, 20-25 buds

$125 SF










WANDAFUL

(seedling x GOD SAVE THE QUEEN)

Named for one of my dearest friends who also is my office manager.  This daylily is colorful and spunky just like Wanda.  A medium purple bloom with a large blue-purple eye.  The edge around the petals can be quite elaborate with lighter colored teeth and tentacles.  The edge is also blue-purple surrounded by a lighter edge.  The sepals can also have a few teeth on occasion.  This one was much admired by Michael Bouman this past summer.  Fertile both ways.

TET, SEV, 22", 5.5", M, RE, 3 way branching, 15-20 buds. 

$100 DF









MARRIAGE EQUALITY

(COTE D'AZUR x ROSE F KENNEDY)

This one has been a favorite since it first bloomed in 2011.  I love the cerise petals and sepals and the lighter pink watermark.  It is darker earlier in the season and it lightens up a little as the temperatures begin to rise.  It has a large yellow green throat with a dark green heart.  Named to celebrate the historic ruling by the US Supreme Court that declares that love is love.  Fertile both ways.

DIP, DOR, 26", 5.5", EM, RE, 3 way branching, 18-25 buds

$100 DF









 
CHATTAHOOCHEE RAPIDS
 
(STARMANS QUEST x WHITE MAGICIAN) x SNAKE IN THE GRASS BOO
 
Medium purple blooms with a large blue-purple eyezone.  It has a large green throat that radiates out into the eye.  The petal edges are crimped and have a white rim.  Veins spread from the eye to the edges of both the petals and sepals.  It is a full sibling to last year's WHISPER OF THE RAINDROPS. 
 
DIP, DOR, 28", 6-6.5", M, RE, 4 way branching, 16-20 buds, FRAG
 
$100 DF
 
 
 
 


 
SHOOTIN THE HOOCH
 
(PRAGUE SPRING x HEAVENLY GHOST RIDER)
 
This is not a nod to drinking, but instead, it celebrates the tradition of tubing, kayaking, and rafting down the Chattahoochee River which flows through Atlanta.  We often take the dogs down to the river and sit on the rocks as the fun seekers shoot the rapids of the river.  This one is a lemon cream with a dark green throat that pushes out onto all segments.  Tall and well branched, the petals and sepals do all kinds of wonderful things.  It is registered as a crispate quilled spatulate.  Fertile both ways.  I have seen a few kids out of it and they have been pretty.

TASTE THE RAINBOW

(STARMANS QUEST x ROSE F KENNEDY)

This is the first of the original 170 seedlings of this cross that I am introducing.  I have a couple more that will come out in future years.  This daylily has an amazing plant habit.  It is a greyed lavender pink with a dark lavender band outlined in purple.  It displays a large green throat that extends out onto both the petals and sepals.  A grass green heart really sets off the bloom.  It is fertile both ways. 

DIP, DOR, 28", 7", EM, RE, 3-4 way branching, 21+ buds, Very Frag

$100 DF










LIFE'S A BEACH

(UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE x KALEIDOSCOPE TREASURE)

A beautiful bi-tone with lavender pink petals with lighter sepals.  There is a dark lavender band on the petals and a large applique covers much of the petal with yellow green.  There is a dark green heart.  Has already proven itself as a fantastic parent.  Very fertile both ways. 

DIP, DOR, 26", 6.5", EM, RE, 4 branches, 20 buds

$100 SF
SOLD OUT


 
 





HITTING THE JACKPOT

(UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE x GOING HOME TO GEORGIA)

There is just something about this daylily that brightens up the garden.  It has an amazing gold color with golden stamens and pistil.  It also has a dark green throat that pushes out onto the bloom.  I have bloomed some very nice seedlings from HITTING THE JACKPOT.  This one is fertile both ways.  It does make smaller fans.

DIP, DOR, 36", 7", M, RE, 5 way branching, 35+ buds

$75 DF






 



 
RED STINGER
 
unknown x unknown
 
What a wonderful surprise to find the baby in the seedling beds.  It bloomed, along with a couple siblings, in a bed of tooth tetraploid seedings.  Not sure how I did the mix up, but I am glad that it bloomed.  My guess is that it might be out of HEAVENLY SPIDER MONKEY breeding.  This one is named for the red wasp that got my finger one morning as I was crossing on this plant.  It is beautiful red, open form, double with a large yellow green throat with a dark green heart.  Very fertile both ways.  95% double.  Very much admired by David Kirchhoff in the garden this past summer.
