I think it is something common and older. It has thick heavy scapes, tall 30-36 inches and is blooming now.
Any idea what it might be? It was given to me with no name.

I agree

I am the last person to know since I only have a limited number of actual registered cultivars in my yard.

It reminds me of Erin Farmer. Took me awhile to think of the name as I haven't grown it in years.

That is a good guess, but I think the petals on mine are wider, Erin Farmer looks to have thinner petals and an even more pronounced stripe down the center. I don't think it is it. But thanks for the guess!

I don't think it is Erin Farmer either. Here is mine.

Do a comparison of scapes. That should tell if it is.

Subtle differences in soil and moisture can make ID difficult.

Judyannz7 - Welcome! I agree with your advice. But .... sometimes scapes are shorter when newly planted (which is what I am seeing in my garden this year as mine are new plants).

Mine have been planted now for 3 years.
It has thick heavy scapes on it.
I first I thought it may be Persian Market, but then I saw that in person, and it didn't really look like it.
This is a pic of it in the morning, the others I took in the afternoon.

It looks like my Decatur Apricot (when it opens in the heat, the eye is very faded). Mine grows taller than its 28 inches. But then my daylilies are children and like my other children they do not always do what they are supposed to do. Hi! Nice to meet you! Long time lurker , short time joiner. May you all be blessed with many joys!

Frilly, your comment on thick heavy scapes is what made me do a double recall of Erin Farmer.

That was taken with a young plant growing in extreme alkaline soil. Yours obviously has much wider petals. Wish I had a photo of it as a mature plant, but I don't. Erin Farmer seems to have much more narrow petaloids.
