hi all,

I'm a bit confused by the AHS rules for naming a new DL... Shrug!

Suppose I would register a new DL with the name "Mayo's Bella Donna",
would that not be allowed because there already is a DL called "Bella"? Sad

I'm pretty sure your name would be allowed.

For example,
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Windswept Morning Angel') Windswept morning Angel was allowed even though there is a Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Morning Angel')

Here are the rules for naming a daylily.

They can get confusing.

Yes the name would be allowed. I just have a thing of wanting my daylily names to be as original as possible, I could put LILLIAN'S in front of most any name in the data base and it would be approved.

I submitted a different name for Windswept Morning Angel that I did not find in the data base but I ended up with the second choice name, so the other must have been reserved. I like unique names as well and have a list that we will work from for future intro's. I guess some of them could be reserved. With daylilies having such a large number of named cultivars, you can work through ideas that someone else already came up with. I have been surprised at a few that are not yet used and on my list. I have also been surprised at some that seemed so original but have already been used. Come on seedlings so I can use those names.

I keep a list of names also and when I see or hear something I like I put it on the list. I play music and I get a lot of ideas from song titles or lyrics.
