I need help identifying a mislabeled daylily I bought from Home Depot. Where could I go to get some help? It's greens are about the size of a Happy Returns. The flower is larger, though. It was labeled "Always Afternoon", but the plant is much smaller than the others, and the flower is missing that purple ring before the throat.

Thank you!

With over 92,000 registered daylilies, it's extremely hard to ID from a photo, someone could say that it looks like so and so, but there are many daylilies that look alike plus some of these landscape daylilies may not even be named.

You could go back to Home Depot and see if they have any daylilies left. Check the labels and see if you can find a label that matches your bloom. Good luck, I hope you can track it down!

Thank you for the responses. I realized it was a long shot, but I figured I'd try!

I did go back to HD, but all they had was a few Always Afternoon and a few gross of Stella D'Oro. (I *might* be exaggerating, but they had a lot!)

I tried looking through lists of daylilies broken down by category, and found maybe a dozen that matched the picture. Chicago Petticoat was a likely suspect!

Anyway, I was hoping someone was wise in the ways of HD's flower practices.

Thank you all again!

Doesn't quite match


With the veining and ruffling, my first thought was Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Jolyene Nichole')

Oh, that is good! I also found pictures of a "Butterfly Garden" that looked very close, but all the descriptions say it's supposed to have "silvery blue or lavender tones." This is just pink, like all the pictures.

Thank you for the possible lead!

Looks a lot like my Tani and it is an early bloomer for me. It's not that popular though that I would think it would be sold at HD. I had Chicago Petticoats and it definitely isn't that one.
