I did a search for blue, selecting no other options, and got nothing. Did a search for lavender and got 1 result. On bi-color I got 1 result also. So is there a trick to searching for daylilies of a certain color? Confused

Yes, there is a better way. I think that you are using the "Flower Color" check box to search like this:

This is not the correct way, you are supposed to use the "Color description" like this:

You have to type in the color, but it you do just blue, then you get these results:

Hope this helps!

You can't search for a range, you have to go 1inch search, then 2 inch and search.

I did not search for a range, the box already said that, so I just selected it. How do I search for a size then?
