This was labeled as La Vita when I purchased it. None of the specs match.
4.5-5" bloom
Scape 24-28
Buds 20-30
Branching 3

It's quite hard to get an accurate picture of the color, it is a deep rust color, sometimes looks like a dark cranberry. I have been testing the ploidy, but started that a few days ago.

I don't find anything that matches exactly, but then, none of my registered cultivars is an exact fit with hybridizer stats either. Shrug! Is this a first-flower open on a first-scape, maybe?

Thanks for checking!!! This is it's 3rd year, and 3rd or fourth bloom, they all look like this. Am still waiting on seed pods to develop for its ploidy.

Cool, checking ploidy narrows down half the work! I think we'll all keep this one percolating as we're browsing cultivars, as it doesn't bring one right to mind. Thanks for sharing it - a really nice red-on-red eye! Will post an update if I stumble across something similar! Thumbs up

Much appreciated, I will update on the ploidy when I find out.
Here's another bloom. Note that it is hard to get the color correct in an image, I have no idea, maybe a dark berry of some kind.

UHG!!! LOL
This Daylily is spitting out everything I don't throw at it :P Both Tets and Dips, so at least I know that it is NOT pod fertile LOL On a lot of the flowers, the pistils are split at the end showing either 2 or 3 of the tubes.
I am still trying.... here is a more accurate pic of the color.

Ooo I wonder if it is one of those persnickity triploids? Hilarious! Is the pollen taking on anything?

It's hard to get a split pistol to take pollen. I have several that do that. Once in awhile I get lucky and get a pod to form. Mokan Butterfly is like that. Pistols are always split. I do ocassionally get pods to form on it though. Keep trying.

I am waiting for a pistil that isn't split, to attempt. Seems to be one in ten LOL

Could you look at the pollen under a microscope?

Wait and see which one aborts. It may take a few weeks but whichever is not the real ploidy will most likely abort.

Yes, i thought the abort would have happened already, seed pods have developed but are small. Will watch and wait. Thanks!

Sometimes they can get pretty big before aborting.

Here's an update, a more accurate pic and 4 lobed seed pods all over it, from both ploidys. Maybe a poly somewhere in it's gene pool it seems?...or some freak of nature... there is only one 3 lobed seed pod out of about 20.
