a winding road

some seedlings are that way.   so parent plants are stubborn.  so you have to make your way around things you did not expect.  and i am not quite sure this is where the road is supposed to end.    the cross is Blast From The Past x Radiation Biohazard ) x Susie Cream Cheese.  the first parent is a new and old plant at the same time.  Blast From the Past has its origin in Challenger, one of the oldest daylilies.   it is also a stubborn plant.  there are many many more plants that it will not cross with, so it was a surprise when it finally crossed with Radiation Biohazard.  so why not add Suzy Cream Cheese to the mix ?   and continue to see what might be a little further down this road ?   two images …

beauty for a day

from the Greek Hemerocallis.  and just for a day.  then the flower fades into a dripping mess and quickly dries to a wisp.  moving yesterday’s flower left the ‘ink’ you see on my hand.  and there is little question to the size of this little beauty.  a cross of Nutmeg Elf x (Blue Lustre x Radiation Biohazard.  a strange combination that seems to have worked out just fine.  once it is moved from the relative shade of the seedling bed it too will play just fine in the sun.  three images…

should

or shouldn’t.  did you ever do something that makes someone else ask why ?  scratch their head in wonder or dismay ?  well this is one of those crosses.  Nutmeg Elf is a small solid yellow flower.  Blue Lustre is larger purple full form flower.  and Radiation Biohazard is a big open star form.  put them all together in one cross and what do you get ?   Nutmeg Elf x(Blue Lustre x Radiation Biohazard.  something fairly different.  still a smallish flower.  three images…

yellow curls

this is a yellow seedling.  a seedling with curls.  a touch of yellow, a touch of green, a touch faded pigment.  it is a first year seedling so it will do with a little more watching to see how it matures.  it should be fun to watch.  the cross is 12_037((11-0822-A Blast From The Past x Radiation Biohazard) x Suzy Cream Cheese)

a little flower

this one is a little flower.  one of its parents is Nutmeg Elf, yes it is little with an elf in the name.  the other parent is a little bigger but not much.  that seedling is Blue Lustre x Radiation Biohazard.   not quite sure what Blue Lustre added to the mix, however Nutmeg Elf seems to have controlled the size and the color pattern comes from Radiation Biohazard.  except for the speckles and freckles that is.  those might have come on their own.  and besides this seedling has decent branching too.  so what is not to like ?  two pictures, one a close up of those freckles.
