|Each day, from early summer on, it's a pleasure to see the latest daylily blooms in the garden. I found this wonderful surprise growing between "Rocket City" and "Gold/Golden Joke" which is what a friend who gave it to me said it was called. However, I could not find a reference to "Gold Joke" in any of the data bases. Can anyone identify it for me?
Regardless, this new "baby" (Image 3) is a welcome surprise to my ever-growing daylily garden!

|Some people give "garden names" to daylilies. One would hope that they wouldn't give their "garden name" to someone when giving/selling a piece of a plant but it may happen. So, is it possible it is not actually a registered daylily but a seedling or unknown daylily that someone just called "Gold Joke"?|
|Thank you for your reply. The only references of "Golden Joke" I found on-line were mention by a garden journalist of this unregistered daylily for sale on eBay from Am. Nurs. Prod. in 2004; & for sale at a big box store several years ago.|
