THis is one that I have labeled as Beautiful Sunrise that bloomed (I think) for the first time last year. Either I have mislabeled the plant (quite possible) or I have the wrong plant. Either way I am pretty sure this is not as labeled.

This is the description for what I thought I had:

Beautiful Sunrise (Carr, 2001)
height 26", bloom 5.25", season EM, Rebloom, Evergreen, Tetraploid, Fragrant, 25 buds, 4 branches, Golden orange with red eye above yellow green throat. ((Ed Murray × Dance Ballerina Dance) × Betty Warren Woods)

Here is a link to the real thing: http://mydaylilies.com/daylily-gallery/daylily-images-a-z/b/...

What I have does not have a red eye.

Any clues as to what it really is?

It looks like a Carr daylily but could be anything, it's not distinct enough to even venture a guess, there are sooooo many yellow blush ones that look like this. Do you have a record where it came from? They may be able to narrow it down for you.

It looks a lot like America's Most Wanted to me.

I bought it several years ago on the LA from JCB1 (Jimmy Boyd). It was planted the spring of 2009. I can't find any pictures of it from 2010. Don't know if it did not bloom or I just missed taking any that year. I will check with him if AI can find the contact info.
