We have been terribly hot here in the Scenic City. There have been five days over 90° this week with more predicted. This is unusual for this time of year. Rarely has it been below 70° at night so the daylilies are mostly wide open early in the morning. 

Charlie Dorsey, the guru behind the DVD series "The Daylily Addict" will be coming to Chattanooga Friday night to do his final recording for the segment on Chattanooga Daylilies for an upcoming segment. Those of you looking for club programs could do a lot worse than using "The Daylily Addict" for a program for your club. The first DVD highlighted, among others, David Kirchhoff and Mort Morss and Richard Norris. We plan to have dinner with Charlie and Helen on Saturday night at one of our favorite restaurants in Chattanooga.
Now to today's bloom. We have three seedlings that we selected this morning:
Seedling No. 0038 (Wonder Of It All X Roses And Gold)
 Seedling No. 0036 (Victorian Lace X Robert W. Carr)

Seedling No. 0037 (Cosmic Sensation X Larry Allen Miller)

We just had a thunderstorm go through. We get them almost every afternoon. The daylilies love it. Tomorrow is another day.

Exciting things happen to those who hybridize daylilies!

Life is very, very good.



  1. Hello Lee, this is Tana in Texas. I love 0037, such clear color and nice form. Larry Allen Miller is one you use often isn't it? Does Cosmic Sensation make a good parent as well?

  2. Hi Tana, I have 2 of this cross that I am saving. Didn't use CS that much. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Thanks Lee for letting me know. I have seen alot of LAM crosses and they all seem to have a really nice form. Gonna have to get me a piece of it I think to put on some of my bridge plants. Have a great evening. Tana
