My tag faded on this one. I'm not sure if it's one of my named Daylilies or if it was a mixup from the seller? I've tried looking through my list of plants that I know I have, but with over 900 registered cultivars it's just so daunting. Hoping someone can spur my memory.

Thanks,
Joy

No Gleni. It's about a 5 or 6" bloom.

I went through the pictures on your "have" list just to see if I could find something to match it, but came up empty. However, I was oooohing and ahhhhing the whole way through Smiling So many beautiful daylilies that I have no room for, but want just the same. Rolling on the floor laughing

Your daylily reminds me somewhat of Flight of the Raven, but yet not quite. Always Afternoon also kind of looks like it, but does not have the edge like yours. I hope someone can help you find the name.

Reminds me of a Salter daylily.
Going through the salter daylilies on the database and you have your pictures on a lot of them.
Could it be Dark Champagne? Maybe to dark.
Bold Vision?

Here are a couple of images of 'Flight of the Raven' for comparison. With nearly 78,000 registered cultivars, trying to ID a no name is virtually impossible, and people can only guess.

I used to grow Flight of the Raven here, and am noting the light midrib in it which I don't see in your image. So they probably are not a match. Sorry, no other guesses.

Thanks, Julie. I did not notice the midribs earlier.

Vickie, LOL
Kidfishing, I'll keep my eye out for Salter Daylilies. Bold Vision looks close, but it looks like it had a gold edge where mine doesn't.
Julie, Flight of the Raven is beautiful, but I agree it's not it.

Thank you all for your help. I'm going to assume it was a mix up from the seller. Wish I still had the tag to see which plant I thought it was so I could scratch it off my list. Such a shame to have to tag this one as a noid. My picture doesn't do it justice, this one screams for attention in the garden.

Pure guess only but it looks a lot like my Zahadoom. Mine didn't get the heavy edge that I see others get because our summer here was rather chilly. I only got it last year and this summer was the first time it bloomed in my garden. There is another pic in the data base that looks much like this. Two actually, Monalisa and Joy have photos of Zahadoom that look quite similar to this. I just noticed Joy posted this! I guess the photo you have of Zahadoom just might be this very plant.


Edited twice in reference to the photos in the data base.

Well I've got some ideas to compare mine with now. Thank you all very much. Sense this is a first year bloom it may take another year or two to show it's full potential.

Looking through my list of daylilies again, I think I may have found which cultiver this is.
I think it may be Daring Deception? I do have it and haven't seen it bloom yet. What do you all think?

It looks pretty close and you are probably right. There is one picture of yours in the database that really looks like a good match and the size of the bloom is about right.




I am wondering about the throat color though. The throat in your picture looks more on the yellow/orange side, whereas the description and pictures on the database look more green. I know that the color of the petals can vary quite a bit depending on the soil conditions, but would the throat color change too?

I think they can. I think temperature and climate makes a big difference too. For instance, some of my green throated cultivars look more yellow on some days. Especially my earlier blooming cultivers. We don't get much warmth here sometimes until mid July and that seems to make a difference.
