No, this isn't about a puppy named NOID, but I'd greatly appreciate your help in identifying these daylilies purchased over on LA last summer. The seller has been long in business, and I've purchased a number of her lilies prior to last year with only an occasional "oops". Last year four out of nine were mis-labeled, and I don't believe she sold anything on the LA this season. The three in question bloomed for the first time last week.

First up is an strikingly beautiful red and orange lily with approximately a 5" bloom and an 18" scape (a lot of my lilies are blooming on shorter scapes this year, so this one's height isn't very probative). It was labeled "Frank's Adorable Candy:

Next up is "Silver Rings" (not), a bloom that looks very familiar to me: it is very large, approaching 7", and cream with a blush of color on the distal petal surface:

The third, and most disappointing was sold as "Irish Spring Song", is a short-scaped, early season bi-color: soft yellow petals with cream sepals, a bit (sorry for the lack of precision) less than 5" across:


Anyway, before I posted their pictures up on telephone polls, I thought I'd present the mystery to you experts here. Thanks for your help!

Did you contact the seller and send the photos to see if she could ID them for you from what she grows? That would be the best thing.... 4 out of 9 is not very good odds Thumbs down

I would say the last one may be indeed correct. If you look at the photo in the data base it could be it. Not quite like yours but as you can see it's not the color of the hybridizers photo.


The hybridizers description for color in the AHS data base says "Cream" and on his website it say "soft cream pink". So if you were expecting a chartreuse daylily you most likely will not get it. As for the other 2 I really don't know.

The first 2 look like they are some of Trimmer's since he does the oranges (maybe Mexican Elvis) and the edge nor eye ones( he has several)

I've recently e-mailed her, no reply as yet. I'm certain she'd help if she can, but she was previously as flummoxed as I over what the other NOID might be. I've done a lot of business with her over time, and she's always been a great seller- huge fresh plants, frequent extra fans, and wonderful bonuses.

I'm not relying on scape height this season in determining possible varieties, because of variations from the norm in some of my other lilies, but instead on flower size.

My "ISS" is somewhat less than 5", with the hybridizer's description listing it as 6". Mine is a bi-color- yellow petals with distinctly cream sepals. As to the color shown in the registered photo, it seems that a lot of hybridizer's photo's I see have been photoshopped to death- colors on lilies never seen by man. Don't get me started on that subject... Grumbling

But do you think, with all the variations within a given variety, that the size and bi-color rule this out as Irish Spring Song?
