I found this beauty at Home Depot, but I'm unsure on the cultivar. Does it look familiar to anyone? An ID is much appreciated! I tip my hat to you.

I'm not a daylily identifying expert, but I happened to be looking at Becky Lynn this evening and your daylily reminds me of that. Yours seems to have a touch of a darker pink halo though, which I don't really see in Becky Lynn.

There seem to be so many varying shades of pink shown for 'Becky Lynn.' So confusing! Sighing!

I like to know names but that one is pretty enough that it would be welcome in my garden as a noid. I'm a sucker for pinks......

Thank You! I think it was the only one Home Depot had. It sure is a beauty. Lovey dubby

That does look like it! I don't know much about daylilies, but what makes one cultivar have varying shades of pink? I was just looking at the database entry for it and noticed they all look a little different shade wise.

So many possibilities vary them... Heat ( cooler, hotter, they change color) Light( more sun, less sun, they change color). Soil acidity ( acid, alkaline) they change color. It's pretty amazing we can recognize them at all although some are more stable than others. My daylilies tend to be bluer, because my soil is deeply acidic. The house was built on an oak woods property and there are still many oaks over 100 years old that are always shedding more acid. It's great for my Hydrangeas, Azaleas, Rhododendrons and of course, purple daylilies.

Sooo pretty! I may just have to pack my bags and move into your yard. Lovey dubby

That makes sense! I had some "ditch lilies" last year (well, I still have them, but they're all in one garden bed now), split up between a container and a garden bed. They were two different shades of orange when they bloomed! I imagine the Miracle Gro potting mix versus our "Georgia clay" and the differing amounts of sun had something to with it. I never thought about it thought until you mentioned it; so cool. Big Grin

One of my gardening friends/neighbor has a picture on the data base. I'll check it out next summer.

Do you think it is 'My Pink Rose' still? I noticed this year, the flower color is different. Blinking I wasn't expecting it to change. *Blush*

LOL! They do change color from year to year, depending on all sorts of things, including light conditions or even the time of day you took the photo!

Also, if those are the FFO ( first flower of the season open), sometimes they look a little different than the flowers will look after they've had a chance to throw a few blooms. It's like they have to warm up. It could be My Sweet Rose but there are a lot of cultivars that look like that so you might just have to be ok with calling it a NOID. Shrug!

Ooh okay! That makes sense. Lovey dubby I think just to be safe, I'll have it moved to the general genus. Thank You! I tip my hat to you.
