Blooms in the greenhouse, April 3, 2012
Left click on image for a larger picture.
Today I would like to share something different with you. Many times blossoms are the same whether the images are taken in the greenhouse or outside in the field. Then there are those that you wonder if it is the same cultivar. Below is the same cultivar, the top image taken in the greenhouse today, April 1, 2012, and the second image is the same cultivar taken outside in the field in 2011. There is a marked difference.
I took one picture today of a named cultivar, Jeff Salter's H. 'Cimarron Rose' (2005). I really like the color, size and form of this daylily. I am using it in my red breeding program.
Life is very, very good.
