When my brother built his house in 1996 he planted these daylilies. He probably purchased them from the old Gilbert Wild Company, which I understand has either gone out of business or has lost customers due to new not so good management.

I love that color combination. Very summery, like mustard and catsup. Thumbs up
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Thanks, Debra. If I can't find another name, I think yours will suffice! Hilarious!

I wonder if the yellow one could be Cartwheels. I bought Cartwheels from Wild's many years ago.

The red looks familiar but not sure about that one.

Thanks, Hemlady. If I look deeply enough in some of my brother's papers, I might even find his old invoice!! We come from a long line of packrats, string savers, etc. I found a tag for a Siloam Double Classic out in the yard however, no sign of that beauty.
