when two daylilies are mixed the cross is an idea. a dream. except it is also a math problem. on a really good day a cross might produce 36 or so seeds. that covers 32 possible genetic combinations. except in reality the possibilities are much greater. one could make several hundred crosses and still not produce seeds that hold those genetic combinations. the possibilities kinda run out to cosmic possibilities. scoop some night time sky and plant it into the garden. see what twinkles…

    I admire your expertise, perseverance and all that – me? I wouldn’t have the patience – “Well – let’s just see what shows up – if it’s meant to be, it’ll be ” – – LOL I’m a generalist, at heart, but Oh! How I love to read the stories and journey’s of those who work a lifetime, or many lifetimes, in one, to dive deep, into one quest – 😀

      I hope Marquee Moon gets blooming for you. A lot of plants have been thrown off their normal schedule this year. I think mother nature likes to keep us gardeners on our toes.
