I have a daylily called Eenie Gold Victoria. Probably bought it 15-20 years ago.

I do not find any info on this daylily, Is it Eenie Weenie? Good news is that is still alive:)

Gold is like yellow maturing.

I grew Eeenie Weenie years ago, and I remember it being more to the yellow side. What was notable about it was that it was registered as being under 2" in diameter, but it only achieved its small size because the segments recurved strongly. When stretched out flat, it measured about 4.5". It was a cute flower, and stayed low to the ground. I think what you have there may be a plant derived from Eenie Weenie breeding. It's hard to say, since nursery companies are famous for finding a good landscaping daylily seedling and slapping their own name on it.

Interesting thing about the labels. The only one labeled as Iverson's that has a hybridizer name and introduction date is 'Eenie Allegro'. The hybridizer Aden has three daylilies registered that incorporate the word 'eenie'. I wonder if Aden had a series and the one you acquired was in line to be registered as Eenie Gold Victoria but didn't get registered after all. The label for Victoria doesn't give a hybridizer name or introduction date. That could imply that it was a seedling. Or maybe they just bought the lot of seedlings and distributed them directly. Someone in AHS might know more about Aden.
