basic color theory

or why i keep notes. the seedling shown here is the result of a cross made three years ago. some can bloom the second year. this one did not. however with several hundred seedlings blooming and no notes i would be totally lost and confused looking at this seedling and wondering who were its parents. and further wondering what might be the next step revealing what mysteries lurk in its genes. because if you have ever looked at the stars and wondered how many stars are up there well the possibilities for genetic combinations in daylilies are even higher. so without further delay this is the seedling from Indigo Ignition and Purple Satellite. seedling first then parents. and while you are looking try to remember this is how we got to yellow. so somewhere in there is lots of purple coursing through this flower’s genetic veins…

And now as the internet takes a pause at the fastest speed known to human kind. Yes faster than a plummeting Moser safe. Can I pour catch up pondering sauce that fast ?

    I may have to do a few ‘long’ crosses on this one to see what the color variation is in the next generation. I am fairly sure they won’t just be yellow. Glad you like it susan !
