The DOTD Shaka Zulu caught my eye as I have a NOID that resembles it... Since most of us don't have much daylily-ing to do outside, I thought I'd try to get photo files in order...
This baby needs its name. I've tried search for "purple" and watermark, and grape purple and watermark. I suck at matching daylilies to NGA search terms... More search ideas for color are welcome!
So, is this Shaka Zulu?
The first three are the same flower taken late morning through mid afternoon. The fourth one might also be the same flower. Didn't check the date stamp on it. The flowers are about 5" and the scapes are around 20". 2017 was its first spring in my garden. Didn't do a ploidy check- can't recall if it was fragrant.

Anyone else have NoIDs for us to guess at? And when is the best time to label a daylily's color? Some of them change so much during the course of a day...

The first photos remind me of a daylily I have in my garden called Exquisitely Subversive hybridized by Curt Hanson. It can look different at different times and temperatures, etc.

I got my ES directly from Curt Hanson, Crintonic Gardens I think it's called. And mine doesn't always have ruffled edges. Your daylily looks more to be a tet. than a diploid as Indian Giver is (my opinion).

Were you gifted any plants from any daylily companies, or just how did you get the daylily?

@Jillz it does look a lot like Indian Giver.

Wish I'd done a ploidy check this summer...

@TsFlowers it's possible that ruffles will show up next year, so I'll have to keep ES in mind.

Thank you both for the ideas... I'll make note of both names in my plant album and try again next summer Thumbs up
