My name is Julie Mitchell Tanner. My mother's name was Mildred Mitchell. I would like to know the history of the name for the daylilies with her name. She was a Texan all her life--1913--1992.
Thank you.

Hi JulieMitchellTanner, Welcome!

Here's our database entry for Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Mildred Mitchell') where you will find some information. Apparently it was hybridized by someone named K. Mitchell and introduced or registered in 1998.

And here's the American Hemerocallis Society Page with information: https://www.daylilies.org/Dayl...

Hopefully some of our more knowledgeable Daylily growers will be able to offer additional information.

@JulieMitchellTanner,

Kelley Mitchell is the hybridizer of the Daylily with your mothers name; perhaps she is relative? I hope you can contact her via email and find the history of that beautiful Daylily!
