Just had to go through the reds again.

Ed, Cherokee Star really is beautiful. And I love daylilies in the 30" height range. I can see why CS is a standout.

Also like All American Chief, Wispy Rays, and Spider to the Fly.

Steve's Corn Rows. This is supposed to be a red, this is an FFO shortly after receiving it. This was taken in the afternoon on a hot August Day, so it may have been redder earlier. I cut the scape shortly afterwards, I have great hope for it in 2014

Ed - I love reds! Unfortunately, the thrips attack them here in my garden beds. I wonder if that might be why reds aren't so popular? I also heard dark purple colored daylilies are also prone to that pest problem. I am an organic gardener because I host butterflies and hummingbirds in my yard. So any daylilies that seem to be less prone to pests or diseases is a good daylily in my book regardless of color of bloom! (I get rust here in Florida, too, along with aphids. We get it ALL in Florida unfortunately ....ugh!)

This is what two of my red blooming NOID blooms looked like with the thrip attack. I had one purple that did the same thing (no photo). I will say that Roses in the Snow and Mamas Cherry Pie had no thrip issues this past year or any year since I have been growing them. They are both hybrids with an unknown pollen parent. So maybe it isn't really a "red" bloom issue, but something else attracting the pests to red and dark purple blooming daylilies?

Mamas Cherry Pie NOID was untouched by thrips:

And so was Roses in the Snow NOID:

Single bloom of Roses in the Snow NOID hybrid:

And I did have some other red blooming NOIDs that did NOT get thrips as well:

This is an unknown hybrid:

An interesting question, Ed ... and thoughtful discussion, Becky! I too have been in search of a clear, home-garden sturdy red, and ended up falling head over heels for darker reds with black or blue undertones. For me it was their ability to take the direct sun and stand up to the intense heat of my zone, and lend more of a background substance to beds that contain a mix of colors - that role for the reds - their subtle ability to blend in and still shine, stole my heart.

But, I think when I finally come across a clear red that does not fade to orange/brown (or show a lot of orange/brown under intense sun) it will truly win me over! And, finding an evergreen dip red that can fill the bill would be my holy grail (a double ev dip red ... the ultimate challenge) since the Dixie Land Band that I have is a tet conversion, so the search continues...

Reds, interesting topic! Our tastes evolve and mine certainly have over the years. I seldom used to order red daylilies, as they just didn't catch my eye like the pinks or purples or those with green... but over the years, more have found their way here.
A few have become my absolute favorites! Seeing the images like this shows just how many shades of red there are,too!

There is something about red daylilies that makes me think of going to a paint store and looking for "white" paint. There are what seems like a hundred different whites! And in daylilies, there are at least a hundred different shades of red. It also seems that whether it is the camera or the growing conditions, the same cultivar may be seen in a few different shades too. Here are a few reds from my garden that I don't think I've seen posted by others.

Depths of My Heart, T. Bell, 2008


Dragon Slayer, Polston, 2007


Iwanna Piranha, J. Kinnebrew, 2006
