|This daylily may be the closest I've seen to "Corvette red" (GM paint code "Torch Red").
Red Hill (Reed, 2004) height 42 in.(107 cm), bloom 6 in.(15 cm), season La, Dormant, Diploid, 25 buds, 3 branches, Red self. (Ballet Russe × unknown)
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Red Hill')
Vigorous clump former, starts late July in my Eastern PA garden. Has a week or two left. Strong scapes, about 40 inches here.
Great choice for a late red.
Finding it is a challenge. Woodhenge lists as sold out. Partridge Hill Gardens might have some.
Red Hill deserves greater attention.
Of about 40 reds in my garden, this is my favorite.

|Call Margo at Woodhenge, sometimes her listings run a bit behind. Sometimes she 'finds' what you are looking for because she is such a nice person.
Funny Margo story; I was emailing with her about a purchase (it was sold out, no promises but it doesn't hurt to ask. She sent it to me) and I sent her two photos; JUST JESSIE and DANCES WITH GIRAFFES.
They were both good photos and she emailed back that she really liked them, were they my seedlings? I answered that they were hers and I named them and she replied "No wonder I liked them!"
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

|Cool story, Charley!
Red Hill is a beauty of a red and sounds like a keeper!
