|@MrKGDickie you're right, they can't be fading if they get more vibrant throughout the day!

|The AHS definition is:
"A daylily flower in which a significant area changes to a completely different color during the day (such as from red to yellow) without visible wilting or loss of substance. The term does not include flowers that merely become a lighter shade of the original color. Environmental factors such as light source may influence the degree of color change."
So changing to a different shade of the same basic colour, even if darkening, would not count IMHO.

Daylilies & hardy hibiscus

|Gotcha. I guess I should delete the pics. I'd be hard-pressed to say Grey Witch and Trahlyta are the same basic color AM and PM, though.
My Pigment of Imagination cranked out 2 blooms this year, in the light and heat of August. Both started out yellow and ended up yellow. Definite letdown.
Hardy hibiscus are a hobby, but daylilies are an obsession.

|My opinion of POI is similar to Julie's. Although I still grow it (it has not been here for many years) it will be one of the first to go when I start downsizing, if not sooner.
