This was a house warming gift and it had a tag that has gotten lost. It blooms in July.

I do not remember who gave it too me. I think it was from one of the neighbors when I first moved in. I asked but know one remembers giving it to me. I know I did not buy it because I do not buy red flowers for my garden. Rolling on the floor laughing

I'm sorry -- I just now saw your post! *Blush*

I believe there are now over 70,000 registered daylilies. Add in that many hybridizers sell the seedlings that they don't want.... so there are a LOT of daylilies on the market. Many, many of them look alike.

Once in a while someone will post a photo of a "No ID" that has some distinguishing characteristic and we can take a guess --- but even then it's just a guess. You can never know for sure.

With one like you have - there are many that it could be.

If you had a list of ones you bought at nursery, for example, and didn't know which one this was - well then we might have a chance at ID --- but to know from the photo --- there are just to many that it could be.

I think it is always best to keep a plant unidentified than to guess at a name when you can't be sure.

My advice is to enjoy it and consider it to be "that red one from the neighbor..." Thumbs up

Thank you. I just thought there was no response because I was a newbie. I know some forums have a click.

I appreciate your response.

As a relative newbie myself, I can assure you that this is a very friendly group of people Smiling Several people have really gone out of their way to make me feel welcomed and to help me along.

the grand silence you heard was everyone shaking their heads and wondering which of the 50 million red ones it might be. Thumbs up

SO glad you found us! Welcome!

I'm sorry Cinta, that I didn't see your post earlier, and didn't welcome you when I did! I sometimes wonder if we need a person here to be a sort of "welcome committee" but then, I'm not sure how we would keep track of who is new. I know its hard for me to remember the names of people who don't post all the time, and I'm a moderator *Blush* So sometimes I miss welcoming someone just because I didn't realize they were new, not because I didn't want them to feel welcome.

The Porch Swing and Weather chat threads move so fast, and with a lot of people posting - some new folks can feel left out... but I truly do not think it is intentional - it's just that the thread moves so quick. If someone new posts at 8 a.m. and then someone else gets home from work, sits down after dinner to read the thread - there might be 30 posts since the new person made theirs in the morning. I make a new thread every 500 posts and sometimes that means every two weeks! Rolling my eyes.

Juli, there is no apology needed. I was not hurt. I realized it was a long shot. It is like Hostas there are so many it is almost impossible to name that plant.

I have been around different topics but this was the first post in daylilies. So I am not new to ATP.

Mary, OldGardener Thank you for the welcome.
