Genna, it is never easy to choose a seedling for introduction, many have good plant habit, and nice bloom, but short scape, so it is up to the hybridizer to determin if the seedling with a pretty face, and good plant habit is worth putting with a daylily with a taller scape, this can take a lot of time. I put some seedlings in my sale that have a nice face and are good for the garden but may not fit my program, or may not be and easy pod parent.
Pretty . Looks like a berry ice cream. I have green shoots coming up! Day lilies and freesia ... Am I early? D
Should I osmacote?

Susie, your daylilies are coming out of their summer dormancy this is normal for this time of year. I would recommend some Milorganite, this should be good until around February when I usually will add fertilizer as needed..
