Just purchased this daylily from lowes.

Looks like the name on the tag is misspelled.

also, there is a Hemerocallis 'Saloam David Kirchhoff'

Neither one looks like the photo on the tag:)

Just have to wait for a bloom. Hoping it is not yellow.

Well, that photo IS a far cry from either. I've always liked the looks of David Kirchhoff in photos. I h ave Siloam DK & quite a nice little daylily. It bloomed well this year & is reblooming now, even though not listed as a rebloomer. And of course, I've seen daylilies sold at Lowes-and other box stores-that didn't match the photos, and in one case the name matched but the photo was wrong. How does that happen? We won't even mention that people shuffle the tags around. I like the places where the tag is attached to the pot.
Good luck, hope you like the result!

They misspelled "Kirchhoff" too.

I just got rid of a clump of David Kirchhoff a few weeks ago It multiplied well after dividing, and had been moved twice to see if it would do better in a different spot, but very few blooms ever opened right and so many were blemished. After 8 years or more, it is gone.

Wishing you luck also and that it is not yellow for your sake.

Can someone please post a picture of David Kirchhoff? I received one and am not sure it's the right one. Sorry for the poor picture but the daisies and Rudbeckia took over. Thank You!

The database on this site has a lot of pics of DK from people who have grown it. I got rid of my clump of it this year.
