Over the years, I have had some daylilies in my garden that looked very similar and I just came across another one yesterday.

On the left in both photos is:
'No Blue Oxfords' (37" tall, 5.5" bloom, lavender pink with purple above green throat)

On the right in both photos is:
'Clarification' (26" tall, 6" bloom, pink lavender with purple eye and edge above green to yellow throat).

In the second picture, I picked a bloom of Clarification and just sat it on top of the scape of No Blue Oxfords. If a photo only had a single bloom of either, I would have a hard time telling which daylily it is.

This also happened with Paper Butterfly (one the left) and Witch Stitchery (on the right). In this case, it is possible that I did get two starts of the same daylily since I purchased both of these at the same nursery two years apart. Mixups happen. But looking at the variations in the color of these in the database you can see a very wide color range in both. And Witch Stitchery is a kid of Paper Butterfly.

Paper Butterfly (Morss, 1983)
height 24 in.(61 cm), bloom 6 in.(15 cm), season E, Rebloom, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Cream peach and blue violet blend with blue violet eyezone and green throat. (((sdlg × Chicago Two Bits) × Thais) × ((Silver Veil × Knave) × (Chicago Mist × Chicago Mist)))

Witch Stitchery (Morss, 1986)
height 26 in.(66 cm), bloom 5.5 in.(14 cm), season EE, Rebloom, Semi-Evergreen, Tetraploid, Cream with lavender eyezone edged purple and green throat. ((sdlg × Chicago Two Bits) × Paper Butterfly)
Awards: AM 1997; HM 1994; RWM 2001

Paper Butterfly on left, Witch Stitchery on right. Picture taken in 2016.

I think if you knew the name at one time, or knew where you bought it, you can sometimes have your memory helped along. However, I agree that if it is a total NOID it is pretty near impossible to know for sure.

The idea of trying to find a name is so you have something to compare it to, you can find the named one at a public garden or order it to see if it is a match ect.
