Hello everyone,
I am very excited with my newest daylily bloom. She's a beauty. However I don't know her name.
Can anyone help with an ID please?
Thanks in advance
Cheers
Robyn

RobynMcK, Welcome!
Do you have any history on the plant? Are you sure it is a named cultivar, could it be a seedling? Do you have any info as to the size of the bloom, the height of the scape, any other photos maybe including the buds?
Any of that information might aide in determining if you daylily can be identified. I don't recognize it off hand, but maybe someone will know it. So many daylily blooms resemble each other, do you know if it came with a name tag when purchased?

With almost 95,000 registered daylilies, it would be near impossible to ID from just photos. People can offer guesses but only growing those guesses side by side would one be able to tell if they are identical. Plus it could be an unregistered seedling or one only bred and available in Australia.

Welcome! @RobinMcK!

Yes, even with more info, it is going to be hard to narrow it down. It is very pretty, that's for sure!

Hi all,

Thanks for all your replies.

We purchased our property as a daylily "farm" in 2015 with over 400 varieties.
The owner before us had nametagged "some" of them, not all.

We are coming into summer here, and we're in full bloom. As we've divided the fans in the past, we've potted only some of them and transplanted most. Meaning that this one in a pot would have come from an in-ground plant at some point. But I can't find it blooming in the garden... yet. I hope it blooms soon so I can see how much of it I have. Smiling

Every morning at the moment, I am out photographing new blooms and creating a database. I am finding old tags with the names of plant that were here at some point. Over the years it appears that tags have become separated from their plants, so I am trying to make some sense of it all. ie. making a list of the tags I have found, googling them to see if they match up to a nametag I have found. Long tedious job.

This one is not flowering at present, but when it does I will take some measurements and take more photos.

Thanks again for your help
Cheers
Robyn

Wow, Robyn. You do have your work cut out for you. Just the kind of stuff I happen to love though! My neighbor asked me to help with creating a list of her 1000 cultivars a few years ago and I had a blast as we walked through her garden and wrote down all the names and locations. So many and so close together though that it was difficult to find some tags. We never did get to completely finish the project.

Wish I could be of some help on this particular daylily, but please don't hesitate to keep posting pictures of others. Would love to see what others you have!

Yes, lots of the tags just say something like "Joan's Red" or "Yellow Spider" or "Dark Pink" or such. Not very helpful. However, there are lots of legitimate names as well, thankfully.

Can I ask whether the blooms on a plant raised in a pot will have the same attributes (size of scape, flower size etc) as the same plant raised in the garden bed?

And ... if I wanted to post some of my photos, which forum would I post to? Or do I just post them in this thread here?

Thanks for your patience with a Newbie Thank You!

I think you should start a new thread, maybe something along the lines of blooms from Australia. If you have actually current blooms in months none of us do, just start a thread like December blooms and post those like all of us here do during the months we have plants actually blooming. What are your peak months for blooms? We normally have threads titled by the month, like April Blooms: normally for registered plants, April Blooms for Seedlings, April Blooms for NOIDs, etc. I don't think we normally have Oct.-March threads like that because we don't have blooms then, we used to have posts from Australia often from Glen, but I don't see those anymore.

I don't grow daylilies in pots, so can't answer your question about how those would compare to a daylily grown in the ground.

I would start a new thread to show us what you have. NGA member Gleni used to start a thread showing daylilies blooming in Australia. It was always so nice to see them knowing they were blooming so far away when it was so cold and wintry here. I don't recall seeing a thread started this year, but here are the ones from 2019 and 2020.

Reminds me of Madly Red, but the edge is too wide. I like that edge. Not too thin, not too wild or frilly.

Good luck with your season.

If people in Australia or other countries in the bottom-half of the world wanted to keep posting their monthly daylily photos (hint, hint), then we could have photos to drool over all year round. Crossing Fingers! Thinking

Gleni is still here but he has shifted house and had to build his garden again over two years. I will start a thread again towards October. I just have to catch up on the registrations too. Unfortunately I lost two of my proposed intros that were stunners because of the shift. Sob.
