After hybridizing bearded daylily genetics for over 20-years, we are now offering some of our newest bearded genetics to the daylily community! Now is your chance to leap-frog ahead with bearded forms like never before! We are offering a limited supply of daylily seed from stable bearded parentage!
~ Listed auction price is for (1) seed*
'Pod' parent (2nd pic): 'MICHAEL'S SWORD'(Best 2005) has proven itself to be the first stable bearded daylily of it's kind performing at 90-99% stable bearding (within our northern zone 5 area and others). Bud counts for MS have surpassed original registration specs by more than two-fold and it thrives in the northern zones from zone 6 and up into Canada (note: original registered specs were based on abnormal dry climate conditions at time of it's 2005 registration). Michael's Sword's bud count/branching, with normal climate conditions is 30 buds with 4-5 way branching.
Pollen parent (1st pic): 'W. AXL ROSE' is proving to be one of the most unique breakthroughs in the 'Bearded' daylily family with a chartreuse-green throat that rivals the likes of 'ROSE F. KENNEDY' and surpasses your average large green throated daylilies in more ways than one! 'WAR' exhibits long green 'bearded-barbed' appendages extending far out onto the petals like no other daylily can do. 'WAR' is also UF crispate in form. 100% bearded cultivars like 'WAR' crossed with MS are proving to produce a high percentage of bearded offspring with 100% stable bearding.
This special LA seed buy offering is an amazing cross from one of our newest and most ultra rare 100% 'Bearded' intro's crossed with the 'genuine article' that started it all within our stable bearded hybridizing program: 'MICHAEL'S SWORD' (Best 2005). This is your chance to get seeds from a very limited seed cross from Rainbow Hill Daylily Farm - "Home of the Bearded Daylily!"
Our selling policy on our seed buys:
***At Rainbow Hill Daylily Farm we strive to please every customer. Let us know if there are any issues with your shipment of seeds immediately upon receipt. We will correct any unforeseen issues promptly. Please keep us informed how your seeds do with germination (and blooming results - we'd love to see pics of the blooms!). If you're not satisfied, we're not satisfied and hope you will give us the opportunity to make things right in all fairness.
Note: seeds will be shipped 'solid' and dry (stored in fresh dry vermiculite). Seed sizes vary especially when comparing diploid seeds vs. Tet's. By date of (fall) shipment, seeds have been refrigerated in ‘dry’ vermiculite for 5-6 weeks (or more, if you need us to wait and ship later). You can moist stratify further, with more refrigeration (if not ready to plant), or plant accordingly with 10% peroxide solution to TLC germination results as preferred (but it's not necessary). It is the customer's responsibility to plant in a good starter soil mix and water seeds as needed giving them sunlight etc. for optimum germination results. We'll also offer simple instructions to follow if desired for seed prep/planting - if you are not familiar with the process.
*Buyers will receive (1) seed/$19.99 unit price buy. Buy ten seeds or more and customers will receive a 40% gift bonus of the same seed cross (ie: 4 bonus seeds for every (10) seeds purchased in this auction buy).
Payment is due within 10-days of auction buy. Money order, personal checks or Pay Pal accepted for domestic buyers. PAY PAL only accepted for international buyers. Domestic shipments will be 'boxed': cost is $5.00 for domestic buyers for a most preferred protected seed shipment. International buyer shipments cost is: $10 for Canadian buyers and $15 for all other international buyers for a double-bubble-packed seed package offering an affordable and protected shipping option (we will combine shipping for any additional future LA seed buys at no extra charge). We recommend international buyers not bid if there are issues accepting the import of seeds from the USA into their country (please double check with your Customs Dept.). We cannot be responsible for lost shipments once they leave the USA. If you have other shipping preferences we will work with you if you prefer or need an express shipment option. Extra shipping/handling costs for express shipping will be an extra cost and buyer's responsibility.
Seeds will be shipped after your seed cross buy(s) has been cold stratified for a minimum of 5-6 weeks (we will combine any additional LA seed buys as preferred with no additional cost for shipping). Seed shipments will begin in September and continue throughout the fall and 2019 winter timing accordingly to better fit your window for seed planting as needed/preferred. We can hold seeds as preferred to better accommodate customer’s needs, as well as, offering your seeds an even longer cold dormancy in our ‘daylily seed fridge’. We have a separate fridge set aside solely for daylily seed stratification that is not disturbed, with every day use, like a normal food storage refrigerator. We suggest buyers to wait for seeds until ready to plant (or refrigerate as needed when they arrive as needed). Proper storage is key to getting good germination results and we prefer you get the best start as possible with your seed purchase(s). Note: all fall 2018 buy seed purchases must be shipped out by the end of February! We plan to ship seeds in batches starting in September and/or the 15th/EOM of every month thereafter: fall '18 thru February 2019 (by request).
