A few unknowns from my grandma's garden--hoping some might be distinctive enough for some ideas!

1. She was calling this Attribution, but this is a double...

2. Very pointy and interesting!

3. She was calling this Friar Tuck, but it doesn't seem to match either

4. A red dwarf, probably not a enough to go on

5. Interesting color and shape

6. A VERY small dwarf bloom--fades a bit more than this during the day.

Thank you for your thoughts and ideas!

Your first one looks a lot like my Double Sunset Glow. It's an older cultivar ( registered 1968). Very hardy and can survive complete neglect. Here's a picture of mine:

Don't know where you are located but my daylilies tend to be paler in NY. When I lived in NC they were more vibrant in color, including DSG.

The red dwarf flower looks like Cranberry Baby which dates from 1984.

# 6 Little Maggie Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Little Maggie') I used to grow this and it looked just like your photo, the ones in the database that show a very prominent eye, mine did not do that.

#4 could be Pardon Me Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Pardon Me') It reaches 18 inches tall or thereabouts, mine did not usually get quite that tall.

#1 Could be Longfield's Twins Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Longfields Twins')

I don't know how long this has been sold to public, but I purchased it before it was registered. I bought it from a place named "Roots and Rhizomes", it was a printed catalog that was mailed out randomly to many people, similar to how Gurneys, or Henry Fields used to do. (before the day of widespread internet). It was the first mail order ones I ever bought before I even knew they were registered or anything like that.

You will not be able to get promising Id's until you know the plants behaviors as each can be different.
The height of the scape, the size of the bloom, the number of buds, the branching, double or not, fragrant, rebloom, semi or evergreen or dormant ect. All of these things can help you ID your plants. Also if you have a general idea of where/when your grandma got them, obviously anything hybridized/sold later than that can't be your plant ( unless of course it is Rolling on the floor laughing because as I pointed out, there are those odd ones that hybridizers sold before they were registered, although that is not really the norm).
