This was sold to me by an individual as "fancy pink" Daylily. I could not find a "fancy pink" in the database, but I did find a "pink fancy". I wanted to be certain that this is correct before entering a picture into the database. The database says "Color description: ROM2: Red orange medium with markings, bitone, or polychrome". I do not know what this color looks like, but it does not seem to match in description. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I agree with you that the color seems outside of what might be expected for red-orange under usual growing conditions (just my gut feeling), and even given any blue-green shift the camera might have given to the photo. Solid-color daylilies are also harder to ID, I think, since there are fewer identifying marks and many other solid-color cultivars out there, so unless someone has special knowledge that would enable them to ID it, it may best grace your garden as a NOID that has a garden name of "pink fancy - noid" ...

And, NOID's are very, very welcome to be uploaded to the main daylily cultivar page at:

Daylilies (Hemerocallis)

Would love to see it there! Thumbs up

I posted the first picture under Daylilies (Hemerocallis). Thanks for the information. I did not want to upload photos that would misguide someone. I really enjoy using the database and appreciate how accurate it usually is. I also wanted to say Thank You! for the acorns that you gave me the other day. I do not know how to use these yet, but I am excited to learn. I was reading how that their are plant raffles. I hope to come across a daylily or lily raffle. @chalyse

I saw your photo in the main daylily database page, tiptonla - how awesome! Hurray! You can watch for raffles in the Events Calender (http://garden.org/barn/events/) or the Ideas tab (in the blue bar at the left of your ATP window, or http://garden.org/ideas/ and just enter "raffle" in the search box). It's a ton of fun, and raffle tickets (or not-a-raffle-raffle tickets Rolling on the floor laughing ) can be bought for 5 acorns each.

Also, you can decorate your posting profile by buying icons with acorns. Under your profile page (the little human head on the top row of the blue bar at left) you can click "manage your micro-badges" and "buy" icons to represent your interests, location, etc.

Sometimes there is even a plants-for-acorns auction in the Classified and Group Buys forum (http://garden.org/forums/search.php?q=acorn+auction&forumid=...). These are just informal happenings that people come up with for ways to share and earn acorns.

If you save up 125 acorns, you might also be able to use them to get an ATP t-shirt ... just tree-mail me if you save up enough and I'll help you check if they are offered at that time.

And, you earn acorns each time you post a picture of your plants in the database for each type of sub-category (bloom, leaves, scape, etc), and for paragraph-length helpful comments left for a cultivar. There may be other ways that acorns are earned and can be spent, and if anyone knows of it I hope they will post @tiptonla
