H. 'Bluebird of Happiness' ................. $100.00

31" ML EMO SEv  5½" - 2¼" - 1" - 3-way branching 16 buds.
A soft purple blossom with a wire thin white petal edge
highlighted by a darker purple edge. The lavender/blue
watermark is highlighted by a darker purple pattern. The flower is
open and shows very well. BoH is a very showy clump with
blossoms forming over the top like a XXXXX of butterflies. It holds
up very well in the rain and decent for a purple in the sun.
'Desire of Nations (Emmerich 2008) and
H. Bluegrass Memories
(Preuss 2006) are two of my favorites and were used quite heavily
and like its parents, blooms later in the season. Pod and Pollen

H. 'Tom Manley' ................................. $100.00

30" EM SEv  5½" - 2½" - 2" 3-way branching 17 buds.
We selected this one to be named for Jean's brother. One of the
showiest flowers in the garden, it is a bright cherry red with a
white wire edge and white midribs that add distinction to the
blossom. The white watermark surrounds a lemon to green throat.
The blossoms are carried high above the foliage on strong well
branched scapes. From two of my favorite red parents, H.
Cimarron Rose' (Salter 2005) and H. 'Barbara Mandrell' (Kirchhoff
2009). Pod and pollen fertile.

H. 'Marines' Hymn' ............................. $150.00

28" E SEv Re 5½" - 2½" - 1½" 4-way branching 19/22 buds.
This name was chosen prior to the killing of 4 Marines and 1 Navy
service personnel in Chattanooga. It is our honor to offer this
daylily. One of the most powerful parents that I have, producing
clear, clean dark red, full formed blossoms. You can see some of
H. 'Marine's Hymn' kids on the seedling page. The form is
triangular in shape and the color is a dark burgundy red with a
white wire edge and lighter burgundy halo. The throat is a lemon
to green. The well branched and budded scapes are held well
above the foliage. It passes the branching on to its kids. Will give
you a jump in your red program.

H. 'Christmas Memories' ................... $150.00

28" E SEv Re 5¾ - 3" - 2" 3-way branching 18 buds.
This picture always stops the show when I have shown my
seedlings at meetings. It is a full formed, round blossom that is
carried well above the foliage on well branched and budded
scapes. The color is a deep clear deep red with a gold/white
edge. A lighter halo circles the bright green throat.  I am just
beginning to see the promising kids from using it in my
hybridizing program and it is producing the round, full form. The
pod parent is a seedling that I got from Bill Waldrop and the
pollen parent is one of my favorite reds,
H. 'Home of the Free'
(Grace 2012).

H. 'Mikayla Belle' ................................ $100.00

31” ML SEv Re  5½” - 2½” - 1¼”. 3-way branching 16 buds.
Wilma Robert of South Dakota won the right to name this cultivar
at the Region 1 auction. She chose to name it for her only
granddaughter. A clear medium purple flower with a slate blue
watermark which continues around the petal and sepal edges.
The form is exquisitely round and full. The blossoms are carried
high above the arching foliage which makes a very showy clump.
Flowering begins when many others have finished. Both pod and
pollen fertile, I set many pods on it in the 2015 hybridizing season.
A very nice and showy cultivar.
