This is the seedling (7659) (PALACE GARDEN BEAUTY X THE KING IS COMING) I used in the next 3 pictures.I am glad to see Dr. Poulton getting into the blue discussion. I believe we will get there and we could be well on our way.
Here again the mauve is gone. All these are coming out of a seedling I got back in 2007, It is the most dormant Daylily in my yard. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. Now all I need is the blue to go to the tip, it's already on the tip of the petals, sounds simple. I am breeding with about 30 flowers in my blues almost all are seedlings.
I was glad to see the article on our quest for blue by Dr. Poulton. The problem I keep running into is the mauve in the end of the petal. This one I have had some success getting rid of the mauve on the tip of the petal. Still a long way to go.
