I bought these two daylilies years ago from a flea market vendor. One was sold to me as Siloam Merle Kent and the other as Bette Davis Eyes. Which is which? When I search photos, both look light pink withe the dark eye, and neither of these look like the pink with the faint lavender eye. As a side note, both photos are pretty true to real color. The first really is a pinkish purple and a very slightly darker "eye" if you look closely; it is not more evident than the photo in real life.

Welcome! The top one looks more like 'Prairie Blue Eyes' to me, the bottom one does look like 'Siloam Merle Kent'. I'll ask for the question to be moved to the Daylilies Forum.

Thanks, sooby. I speculated that one was mislabeled.
