I have had this since our first house and now it grows and blooms like a monster. Six inch blooms with max. scape height of 41 inches. Mid season bloomer.
It looks very much like Hot Wire in some pics in the database and others not so much. What do you think.

Kevin --I think the midrib on yours is pretty pronounced. Midrib also looks kind of white. I do not think Hot Wire. Yours is a tall daylily. The height and midrib are two standout traits. However, I have a hard time searching on the databases with that info directing me to a daylily. Hopefully someone recognizes it. Good luck and may you have a joyful week.

Thanks. I had my doubts but since you pointed those out i guess it will remain a mystery for awhile. Whatever it is its a keeper for me. Very big clump that never fails to perform well year after year. Probably an old hybrid that i store bought long ago before i got real crazy into this hobby.
