Hybridizing Daylilies

I didn't plan to get into hybridizing daylilies, I just wanted to leave that for the experts and I'd content myself with collecting and selling what other hybridizers were developing. Then, international hybridizer Ted Petit and his wife Susan, visited my garden and told me I needed to hybridize. I have been working on a few plants every year and usually get 100 to 200 seeds. Because my property is extremely rocky that's about all I can handle for space to plant new plants because it takes weeks to prepare a new bed. Daylilies are very easy to hybridize.
