Hybridized and Home-Grown!
For the past few summers, I've formed the habit of wandering the yard (and my neighbor's yard) when the daylilies are in bloom. I "hybridize" the various different colors and wait to see if seed pods form. Once the pods are formed and dry, toward early fall, I harvest and store the seeds in the 'fridge till the next spring. Then I plant some. It takes the baby plants a couple or three years to bloom; then you get to see what new variety you helped create. Great "Old Lady Fun"!!
