I ordered ''JUDY FARQUHAR'' and when it bloomed it was not the right daylily. I emailed the seller and he has nothing that looks like this and I do not know what this could be either. I have no idea how I could have gotten tags mixed up since I only pot one at a time and make new tags then. This is still in a pot too. Mystery pot. lol.

If there were only a picture somewhere on the web to confirm the description, I'd almost say the color in the first photo could match Oleo-Judy Farquhar: "vague cream mauve pink blend with light pink mauve halo and white gold edge above green throat". Fun mystery - would be neat if someone can make a full match. Any other details to add to the clues? Height, size of bloom, etc.? Thumbs up

That's a really good guess! I will investigate and take measurements of the new flower that opened this morning. So far no pictures to be found of Oleo-Judy Farquhar.

Sorry. *Blush*

Blue Abyss was leaning over on it. Looked just like the scape came from Judy Farquhar. I picked up Judy Farquhar and it has no scapes, it has not bloomed yet! And this new flower looks nothing like the Blue Abyss I photographed two weeks ago. Check this out!

Awesome, though, your sleuthing led to its ID and that's helpful to everyone who wonders at a bloom. I know I have puzzled this summer, and found that same thing happen in both garden and porch-pots, that when I touch and follow the scape it may be one from "another mother" than I thought! Thumbs up

I am really beginning to appreciate how varied blooms may be, one after another. It is so helpful to see that range in the database, too. Whether we see differences because of sun exposure (end of day, etc), FFO vs later blooms, or just normal and expected variation in blossoms - it lends confidence to see that it is not always a mis-labeled plant. I think in some ways daylilies are like kids who go through "growing pains" or "awkward stages" ... sometimes the blooms are still in the middle of settling in to their final form.

I agree I have submitted several that looked like they just came out of a washing machine. I felt like saying, Look you are a flower, ok?

This flower has been an interesting lesson, I have three blooms that look totally different to me and they are all based on the amount of sunshine the flower was getting. I added three flowers to the database, One for full sun, part sun, and full shade. The differences are amazing.

I have had that too! One pale lavender, one pale pink, one pale yellow and one near white, all from the same scape. Hilarious! If I hadn't taken a photo with the separate colors showing up, I might have thought I'd imagined it!
