I know that this is a very dangerous forum to enter (I will not, repeat NOT look over at the sidebar!), but I'd like some help locating a daylily as part of a small garden memorial for my dear departed wolf girl, Aurora. I know there's a daylily with that name, but I can't find it. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I'd settle for Aurora Blues, but I can't find it either. Rolling my eyes.

Aww, you're too kind, Natalie! But I'm not sure I could trust you with my wallet.....I know you've been looking, too! Hilarious!

Actually, that second link was fairly reasonable, so I'm looking into ordering there. Smiling

Just bumping this thread up. The so-called Aurora Blues I ordered from someone (maybe baylins, who now seems to be defunct) turned out to be a perfectly nice, bright yellow NOID daylily. Sigh. Ha! And searching a bit farther, I see that several others have had "issues" with Baylins.
So. Still looking for Aurora Blues, heh, this time from a reputable company. Hilarious!
AND Crazy Ivan
And Margaret's Choice or Lady Margaret Rose. Sigh, had 'em, but lost 'em in moving.
Suggestions greatly appreciated. Smiling

...or you could always buy a few, hybridize, and introduce your own "Remembering Aurora". I'm thinking something like:

A Time to Paws (d) x Magnetic Personality (d)
Paw Print (d) x Radiant Energy (d)
paw prints on My Heart (t) x Solar Blue Angel (t)
Purple Paw print (d) x Always the Love and Light

Yes, I'm being an enabler. ;) Whistling
