Today I went to backyard and found couple dayliles and I liked them. So, I pulled them out and replaced into my flower garden in front yard. I also discovered there were literally hundreds blooming behind my fence in the backyard, by the creek. I want to make sure if I am correct that it is kwanso daylily as I found via google.

i have attached my pictures of the flowers.

Looks like Daylily (Hemerocallis fulva 'Kwanso') to me too.

Looks like it to me too. Be careful where you put Kwanso. It multiplies by stolons and runners. I dug some up in my flower garden and moved it next to a fence, but here I am two years later with blooms coming up in the original spot they were in. So I will be trying to dig them out again. A small root left in the ground will eventually grow again.

Here is a picture of mine. I will probably regret this some day, but I put it all along this fence. Why does it have to be so doggone pretty, lol!
