|This was labelled as "Ageless Beauty" but is obviously not. I did a bit of a search and thought it might be "Open My Eyes". Any ideas? I realize that there are so many similar daylilies that it likely will be very difficult to confirm but just thought I'd put it out there. I do like its coloration a lot. Thanks!|

I think your right, Open My Eyes looks like a match.
Very pretty background!

|Thanks. Yes, that burgundy oxalis self seeds itself and comes back every year; just a happy circumstance it coordinates with the Daylily!|
I see that Open My Eyes is rated zone 5 so not sure how vigorous it will be for me ; it is planted in a very protected spot close go the house so hopefully will do ok.

| Open My Eyes is supposed to have a dark purple eye but maybe your camera is picking out the red in its color as so many cameras do as apposed to what you actually see with the naked eye. Is it really burgundy red or is it darker than that?|
SO MANY DAYLILYS, SO LITTLE LAND

|Yes I took the picture with my iPad which does seem to pick up the red tones. If memory serves me if was darker to the eye but still more burgundy than purple I think.|

|This is my "Open My Eyes". I have had it for 3 years. The color is very close to this picture. I cannot tell if yours is the same but I hope this helps.|
