The scape is 23 inches, and the bloom is 6 inches. The tag said Benchmark, which it isn't. I call it Benchmark Not. I believe that it's a tet. Any suggestions would be great. I planted it 3 years ago, and it looks really pretty this year! I'd love to know it's name though! It's a little more orange or coral than this photo shows.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks Cindy. I am using it for hybridizing because I really love the edge on it, but I'd be a lot happier if I knew the name!

I just had a thought! There is another daylily in the middle of this clump that could be Benchmark. The blooms on it though have been really sad looking the last 2 years, so I haven't been able to tell if it really is Benchmark or not. But, it looked similar to that one. Hopefully, since this one looks so good this year, the other one will look good too! I'm afraid to divide it to get the other one out because it really does look great this year!

Only thing I have in my garden that looks remotely similar is "Acoma Sunset"

That's the closest I've seen yet, but I'm pretty sure that it's not the one. The edges on mine look a lot more yellow. I really love yours!

I took another peek at mine -- looks similar to Ming Porcelain too. That's about all I can add/help with!

That one is really close too! I don't think it's a match, but it's another beauty! Thanks for the suggestions, because until now, I had seen nothing close!
