There's no pic of 'Octavia Rumbley' in the ATP database and a quick Google didn't turn up any either. As I mentioned in another thread, I'm trying to sort out lost/faded labels and correlate with my map. I know I had it at one time but it's not marked on my map and nor is the location of this pictured daylily. The AHS description fits but does anyone have this daylily to compare? Thanks.

I'm bumping this up because as far as I can see I've accounted for all the other daylilies on my map and believe that means this is indeed 'Octavia Rumbley', or at least what I acquired labeled OR. It seems to me to fit the AHS description:

Color: azalea pink with deeper eyezone and straw yellow throat, scape height 28 inches, bloom size 6 inches

Unfortunately I can't find a picture of 'Octavia Rumbley' anywhere to confirm. Since there's no picture of it in the ATP database, would it be safe to add this? I got it at an Ontario Daylily Society meeting years ago. Here's another pic, not the best since it was in the shade:

I think it would be safe to add the image to the database. You sound pretty certain that it is Octavia Rumbley. I sometimes find images when in the database which have been entered from other sites that don't match the registration description. Incorrect images can always be corrected, either moved to the correct entry if known or deleted.
