Daylily (Hemerocallis 'By Jove')

I like the color of this one, but I can't find any info on the bud count. ?

It being such an old daylily, I would think the bud count would be low. No one is showing it in their plant list, so it is not one of the more popular plants. That may make it hard to get the bud count. If you have found a source for the plant I would ask them what the bud count might be? What are the traits of this plant that has you interested in it?

It is an old Wilds and I like the color. The Wilds ones are hard to find sometimes, you can order them sometimes of course from Wilds but its Russian Roulette if you actually get it or not Rolling my eyes.
It is a wrong assumption that older daylilies have low bud counts. I have grown several older ones over the years and they perform often times better than the newer ones. I found it at Homestead Farms, I guess I will call and ask about it, I hadn't thought of that-beings I am a genius and all. nodding

Frillylily,
I would love to know some of the older ones that have the high bud counts. I was out measuring some of my scapes and counting the buds the best I could and was shocked to see they had such low bud counts, even though some of those plants have been excellent performers. So I guess bud count is not necessary for a plant to really perform well, the number of scapes it sends up can make up for the lack of high bud count.

For me performance would be large number of blooms, makes no difference to me if it is on one scape or many scapes. Just look at the common ditch lily, it blooms like crazy and blooms for quite a while also, I guess bud builders would also have a lot of bloom, but the year it was hybridized really makes no difference, there are good and poor performers within newer varieties and the older. And rebloomers in the older ones and the newer.
