Phil and Cheryl have been busy! In preparation for our July 2015 Regional, they’ve killed some grass. 😉 Feast your eyes on the newborn Stanley Saxton bed.
Cheryl’s gardens are lovely even in late fall.
Somebody get that guy a beer!
Looks fantastic! Love the hillside bed!
Here are the Saxton guidelines according to the AHS website: <–Click on the link to go directly to the site and check out previous winners.
The Stanley Saxton Seedling Award was first proposed by the Hudson-Adirondack Daylily Society as a means of focusing increased attention on Region 4 hybridizing. Many AHS members of Region 4 actively hybridize and have produced some high quality seedlings deserving of the Region’s attention. This award will place emphasis on plants that not only survive in Region 4, but also bloom and increase well.
Specifications: The award is for the best unregistered seedling seen at the yearly regional meeting. It will be awarded each year that there is a bloom-season meeting, and will not be awarded from photographs. Region 4 hybridizers are asked to submit a maximum of three (3) unregistered seedlings with a maximum of three-to-five fans each, the year previous to the judging. This will allow the seedlings to settle in and grow. All seedlings will be planted in one location in one tour garden for easy evaluation. This will insure that all seedlings receive equal treatment. Seedlings from purchased seed are not eligible, nor are purchased seedlings. All seedlings will be grown under number with no hybridizer or name identified on the label.
I purchased several Stanley Saxton lilies June 2014 before the builder leveled his property to build a home. However, at that time they were not in bloom. Several are blooming now in my garden the following year, but I cannot identify them. Is there a listing anywhere, or can you direct me to a link where I can identify? I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you,
Here’s a link to the list of Saxton daylilies on the AHS database, Mariann. Not all have photos, but you could google the names of those without to get pictures. Over 300, so it’s a project! Good luck! 🙂 http://www.daylilies.org/DaylilyDB/search.php
