I'd like to be able to buy this flower to plant in my garden as a memorial to my daughter is there anyone who can help me with this. I was told about this particular plant and its name and colour today and am not sure how to go about finding it.

Here's a link to a daylily with that name, bred by Westbourne
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Westbourne Crying for Teresa')

On their site, it is a 2012 introduction but it says it is sold out for this year. You might want to contact them to put in an advance order for next year though.

You might check on the Lily Auction. I do not know if Mary Jane still sells on there or not. She used the seller name Bubbles. If you have any plants to offer in a trade you might consider posting on the TRADE Forum here on ATP.

One thing I will mention is that I do not know how well Mary Jane's plant would do in Canada. I have had to give up several of hers that I bought because they did not like it here in Indiana. The plants grew well for the most part just did not seem to want to bloom for me.

Welcome to All Things Plants, @JED.

I hope you are able to find the plant you are searching for, that's a lovely idea for a memorial garden; I'm so very sorry that you have the occasion to do so, however Group hug

Hi Jed. Welcome!

My condolences to you and your family. Mary Jane Meadows, at Winterbourne, lost her daughter, Teresa in 2008. She has 11 more lovely daylilies in addition to Crying for Teresa, that are tributes to her daughter,

You may find one or more of them to be equal in beauty and tribute to your daughter. This is the link showing the tribute, and the second lists them all with info and availability.
