A daylily customer has asked me for the second time now to let her know when I have something in this color. Does anyone have a guess as to what this might be? I don't think I'm going to have that color out of my breeding. Sorry about the size but it's bigger if you click on it.

Trying to think of cultivars that would be similar and easy to find. This is one in my garden that is somewhat similar.

I don't think I have one that I can say is that bright of a magenta-pink for lack of a better description. I've seen pictures of Her Best Bloomers that look like that without the fancy eye zone, but I see others that have more rose in them, so I'm not sure. Maybe someone who grows that can eliminate it.

Last comment then I'll let everyone else try to figure it out. It looks like a picture of Bridgeton Love Triangle that has been highly saturated in Photoshop. I hope that's not it, because other than the daylily database, I can't find a picture of it or anyone who sells it.

The closest I come to that color is Hush Little Baby

I was one of the first 300 contributors to the plant database! Plant Identifier
well since it says "Smokey's" on it, have you tried contacting them to see if they know, it appears to be something lifted off their website at one time.

Also might try-none of these are that one, but they are similar in color, I have grown them all and they are all great perfomers.

That Bridgeton from Dr Apps look as close as it is going to get. Another Apps with its varying look without the saturation is Rosy Returns. Easy to find. I have at least five clumps of it in my garden.

Thanks all. I wrote to Smokey's to see what they can tell me since there's nothing like it on their site currently.
