I saw this beautiful daylily at my local botanical garden. It did not have the usual identification label as most all other plants at the garden. I would love to purchase one if I can identify it. This was the one and only bloom...taken July 5th. The scape was very short....maybe 15-18 inches.

Pat i do not know what that is but it is gorgeous. Being so unique compared to so many others like all yellow or all red i would think it should not be too hard to identify. Love it. Thumbs up

That's what I was thinking, but no one seems to know what it is. It was more cream, rather than yellow.. It looks like some of the Floyd or Gaskin introductions, but I didn't see it listed. I sure would like to have a few fans of it.

Perhaps someone will recognize it but if not you could try emailing the botanical garden or checking their website, assuming they have one, to see if they list the cultivars in their daylily collection.

Hi Sue,
Im a member of my local botanical garden and I checked around and nobody knows the name of it. This was planted near a few clumps of Happy Returns and may have gotten mislabeled before planting. I sure do like it!

I have a NOID that came from Blueridge in 2013, that looks very similar. Short (15"-18") thick scapes, it is a larger heavy substance bloom. I know this is of little help to your question, other than maybe it is not uncommon.

Thanks Gale, that looks similar but I don't think that's it. Maybe the garden will give it to me:)

Becky, the eye looks similar but the one that I saw was tighter and smaller. The height is spot on. I realize that the same cultivar can look different depending upon the soil and other growing conditions so it maybe the same one.

If they aren't the exact same cultivar, then they sure could be twins! Thumbs up

Pat, There are many very similar looking Daylilies, this one did have some blooms that were much more of a bagel shape, however, it is a large bloom, I never measured it, but I would say 6" is close.

This one was about 5 inches...maybe a bit smaller. My pic looks more yellow than it was in person....it was closer to ivory or cream. I'm still looking for it.

Pat - Do you think that is what you have? Confused

I think I may order Ellis Powell this fall. Even if it's not the one that I saw at the garden, I like it. Maryotts has it for $16.00.
