This plant is a perfect example of how the same plant will behave differently in different environments.
My wife and I drove to Marietta Gardens and got this plant (and a number of others) direct from the Shooters (Faye, Elizabeth & John).
But yet, if you look at the pic by Calif_Sue and compare to the Guybo shot - you could easily be convinced that these are actually two different cultivars.

Happy Growing!
May the blooms be with you!

I have learned to never be swayed by color differences, as you said, environment has a lot to do with it. That could mean soil, fertilizer, temperatures, if a shot is taken in full sun or part shade as well as how a camera reads and displays colors. Some do really well with reds and purples, others need a bit of tweaking to get a more accurate rendition.
Between our two images, I would actually know they are one and the same as I look at those notched eye bands, they really look alike despite the slight color difference. :nodding:

If you are talking about the other image labeled as mine, if you enlarge it, you see the caption reads "Photo courtesy of Marietta Daylily Gardens". Big Grin
