I ran into his today. I had never seen it mentioned here. Of the 20 cultivars listed, none were vaguely familiar to me except for two. Are their ratings the bee's-knees or are the selections trite?

The problem is that when you are young your life it is ruined by your parents. When you are older it is ruined by your children.

Interesting.

If you look around on that website, there is a section of "Tea Party Daylilies."
Good grief! Now daylilies have gotten political!

I had requested a catalog before I saw that...

I just found a mention of them before. Apologies for my poor memory.

The thread "Unregistered Daylilies with Names" in Daylilies forum

Okay.
Go to their link:
http://www.allamericandaylilie...

And click at the bottom of the page where it says "buy now" and see what comes up....
(http://www.americandaylily.com...)

Looks to me like they are connected.
That is how I came across them in the 1st place.

Yes, you are right. That company seems to have a "Patriotic" bent to it. You might want to avoid supporting it if you find it offensive. But All American Selections are also sold by Oakes. Red Volunteer is one.

Oakes is the hybridizer of Red Volunteer, so it is fitting that they sell their own intro! Has nothing to do with All American Selections and why they sell it.

Some of the name issue was covered in another thread and why some regular hybridizers used the term "All American" in their registrations.

I followed the link and looked at three interesting blossoms.

for one of them, the AHS database had an entirely different photograph
on another, the name didn't exist on the AHS database
on the third, the AHS database did not have photograph, but the description clearly did not match
the photo on the all American site

Can you spell Scam?

In any case, I wouldn't trust any site that failed to clearly state EV Semi-EV or Dormant in its descriptions.

Has anyone heard a story about Red Volunteer being a seedling from a man in Owensboro but was registered by Oakes?

I think they need 30,000 emails requesting clarification of their 'named cvs.'

Oakes sells their selections, perhaps they would know more about them. I think that Red Volunteer is an Oakes cultivar. I have heard of all the others because they are in the Oakes catalog. I have always thought Oakes was a good company, except for being overpriced.
