I would love to buy two of these day lilies preferably in the U.K. Do you know any sellers?

Hi Niney, Welcome!

I did a quick google search and looked at a couple of companies in the UK who sell Daylilies but the few I checked didn't have the beautiful Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Phoebe Grace') listed.

I found this site for the British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society with a list of members who are suppliers of Hosta and Daylilies. Perhaps you could contact a couple of them and inquire about the availability of 'Phoebe Grace':

It appears this daylily is a 2015 introduction and was hybridized in New Hampshire, USA. Unfortunately, therefore, I think it is highly unlikely you will be able to get it in the UK. There has been a recent ban on imports of daylilies and other plants from the USA into Europe due to the disease Xylella fastidiosa that affects agricultural crops. You could contact the hybridizer and find out if anyone in Europe managed to get a plant of 'Phoebe Grace' but even if they did it is so new it will likely be expensive. Sorry to sound so discouraging! Here is the web site of the hybridizer:
