So,
I am looking at all the pretty options, and came across "Chickens on the Porch", which make me laugh because I can totally relate to that. Which would you buy for the name?

Only daylily I ever bought for the name was 'Tennyson', it was my grandfathers middle name, my fathers middle name, and my middle name.

My daughter convinced me to buy 'Tuna Fish in G Major' because she loved the name. She also talked me into 'Defying Gravity' and 'Wicked' because she loves the musical. Turns out she's a bit of an enabler when it comes to daylily buying!

Darcy you might as well add Me Bachman's "Chicken On The Run" to go with that one :rofl:

"Catawba River" and "Carolina Blue Eyed Guy" are some I would add just for the name. Mainly because I'm a blue eyed Carolina guy that lives on the Catawba River Smiling

I have a "Washington corner " in the garden. Included are Outside the Beltway, Clowns in Washington and The Ego Has Landed. I told my friend Bret that he needed one with that name the year after he came out with Clowns. I also like some with the "cat" names. A few favorites are One Cat Too Many, Crazy Cat Lady, All My Kittens and When Cats Go Bad. Yes I grow them all, and fortunately they have great blooms.

This was not bought for the name, but for its looks, but the name is funny:

Knickers In A Twist

This one was for both, name and looks:

There are many members that have themed gardens. I know @Legalily and @lovemyhouse both do themed gardens and likely bought more than a few based off of the name alone. Hopefully they will come on here and share some they got just for the name.

I will probably order "The Flower Formerly Known as Griff". Griff was my late Wife's maiden name. Also interesting that the Hybridizer is named Yost, My brother-in-laws name.
