I dug this daylily from my Mom's garden after she passed away. It is now blooming in my garden and I would like to know what the name is, she thought it might be Moon Over Miami.

Doesn't appear that we have a pic of it in the database and neither does AHS, so maybe someone here would have a pic to compare.

Welcome! Seedfork!

Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Moon Over Miami')

I see by the registration information that it blooms mid-late, is 20" tall and 4-1/2" bloom. Those might be things you can check - 20" is pretty short, 4-1/2" is on the small side, and mid-late is a little out of normal range. "cream yellow with rose eyezone and green throat" description might fit what you have. It is old enough, that photos were not required for registration and also few people would still be growing it.

Since your Mom had that name for it, I'd check the bloom height and size, and when it blooms according to when other daylilies bloom in your area and see if it matches the registration info. If it does, then it may be Moon Over Miami.

Unfortunately, you may never know for sure.

Hello
I am new here but my mother and grand mother grew this lily the Miami Moon. I have one in my back bed and it is old. It was one of my grandmother favorites as it is a solid golden yellow color no eye. I have several my grandmother had but alas she did't keep up with the names very good. I do have a picture of it will try to get a better one this weekend if you like. Thumb of 2013-06-06/Catlily/f95f3b

Catlily, Welcome! Welcome!

Both Miami Moon, and Moon over Miami are registered daylilies, so it is likely you both have the correct ones. Both were registered many years ago.

For more information, go to the Plant Database tab above, here on All Things Plants, and in the search area, put in the name. The descriptions given could fit the daylilies that each of you posted photos of.

Welcome! to both of you! Lovely flowers! The new daylilies, with all the bells and whistles, are really nice, but the older ones are just as nice to me. Love the colors of both of them!
