I have this NOID that I got several years back from someone who didn't know what it was and if I remember right it was something that bloomed for her and was not what it was supposed to be. She ordered quite a few things from Wilds and from Oakes and since Holiday Delight is an oldie, I think it fits the bill for coming from Wilds. The only thing is my blooms usually are around 4 1/2 to 5 inches, not the 6.25 it is registered. However I have other DL also that do not reach bloom size/heights as registered so I'm not sure that is a deciding factor of itself.
Does anyone else grow this?

I hope someone has a clue (as I don't) but that's a nice looking daylily even if the blooms are a bit small for you......Maryl

It looks like it to me. Many of my blooms do not match registration stats.

HI
Here's mine Holiday Delight. Looks kind of similar. And it came from Oaks Daylily

Vickie, the coloring looks close to me, but I think Outrageous has some distinctive midribs that are not present on Holiday Delight? Just my opinion. Smiling

You are probably right. I was on lunch at work when I was looking at this and was in a hurry, so I didn't have a lot of time to study it.

But you took the time to check and I think Frilly really appreciates the effort. I do. Smiling

Edited to say: I got confused on names, which is not unusual. Crossed your user name in my head with Dayjillymo, sorry. {{blushing}}

I actually thought it could be Outrageous for awhile, but just wasn't sure. I think outrageous has a little more contrast in the color, where the eye meets the petal color. Debra noticed the midrib is slightly more prominent in Outrageous and I think she is right there. I guess the only way to know is to order something and grow it together. Thing is, since my big upheaval (move) I don't even know for sure if I still have this or where it is. Whatever it is bloomed like crazy for me and was a fast increaser and had sturdy scapes. I don't remember rebloom but that isn't reliable for me on any of my dl anyway.

Frillylilly, I don't think that it is Outrageous.

I received Holiday Delight in a trade a long time ago. I don't have it tagged, but I think this might be it which looks very similar to yours.
