|I have a daylily that I would like to identify. The person I got it from said it was a real old daylily. It is a rust color and more like a spider. |

|Welcome to ATP. |
There are literally thousands of daylily cultivars. Here are a few links that may help you in your search. You may also want to post on the ATP daylily forum

|with kidfishing, it could very well be Autumn Red, a classic oldie with that distinctive midrib and large flaring throat.|

|Welcome, SD! |
Your old daylily looks a lot like one I just posted in Plant ID about two weeks ago. Some very helpful links were posted that helped me narrow down what it might be. You may want to track down that thread (I'd post the link, but I'm on my phone and its harder to search for it). I determined that mine might be a short-because-of-shade "Autumn Red", "Challenger", or even "Gay Troubador". I've given mine the garden name of "Red Challenge" because it's such a fitting description.

|Oops, just kidding. I posted it in this forum. Here's the link to that thread. Hopefully the links within it will help you find your cultivar!|

|Red Thrill is also an older one. I don't think it is what you have here, but is red w a light midrib. |
@DogsNDaylilies - yours looks more like red thrill
there are just a lot of the red old ones, so hard to tell.
best way is to order one you think might be it and plant it close by, that is the only real way of knowing.
