I saw the name Ruth Esper mentioned in a Blog someone sent me. It mentions that she has bred a number of daylilies. I also found a listing for ADEODATUS (Esper 2012) in the AHS listing. Perhaps the blogger can help you find who you are looking for.

If you type Esper in the Hybridizer box and then hit search it brings up 27 varieties.

Thanks Bob. I tip my hat to you. I think my Spell check changed the spelling to "Lynette" when I was looking earlier.

The hybridizer is Ruth Esper and she is in Holmes, Michigan should anyone be interested in her daylily crosses.

This is the only reference I could find on line. I t does not sound like she has a garden center that sells plants. I would google the different varieties by her on the list above and try to find someone that sells her plants.
