I have this 5 1/2" beauty that's tropical looking shades of peach with pale peach eye & gold throat & heavy crepeing. This picture makes it look darker & pinker than it is. It blooms for months, from April thru summer. I got it unnamed in the 1990's from another gardener. Problem is it never gets taller scapes than 6" & flowers sit just above the evergreen foliage. I love it & have tried to ID it thru the years. Any ideas? Thank You!

Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Indian Pumpkin')

I don't know of any that only get 6 inches tall, but I had Lady Angel for several years and it never got taller than 10 inches and I tossed it out!
Shrug!

If you have the time , the inclination, and a good garden spot, you might want to try an experiment with this. If the plant is not currently in full sun with amended soil and getting adequate water during pre-bloom and bloom time, you might move it to a better location and see what happens. We were extra dry in MArch and early April before my irrigation system was turned on. We also had a late cold snap. Some of the EE and E bloomers sent up short initial scapes. But the rebloom scapes on those that rebloom have all been at normal height.

Any of these conditions can contribute to abnormally short scapes. I somehow doubt that anyone would have registered a 5.5 " flower with 5"scapes.

Thanks for all responses. They were very helpful.
FrillyLily I checked the 2 you named but no match & presently I'm looking at Cheryl's 'Monson' varieties by pictures of peach & rose colored ones & that will take a while.
floota it's been growing in full sun in a day lily bed I made 5 years ago. It gets yearly Bayer 3 in 1 in March before setting blooms & again in July as we have humidity in south LA that causes rust some years in July rains. I love the beautiful flower so much I never thought to toss it out. I cut it with short stem sometimes & put it in a 6" bud vase for the day to enjoy.
If I figure this all out Y'all will be the 1st I'll let know. Thank You! Trudy
