I would like a bright red with green throat

or a hot pink with green throat

have you owned or seen anything that was drop dead gorgeous
in these colors or one you have that is very photogenic
in its color and the way the bloom is large and is held upright
so you can see it well looking down on it?
I need to order one this week or next week..

Sheri, I don't grow any of the following, but I suggest you check out Holly Dancer, Red Ribbons, and Heavenly United We Stand. The last is not a spider, but it won the Stout Medal and a number of NGA members grow it and consider it an outstanding daylily.

I grow Gossard's H. United We Stand and Crimson Ninja, and if I had to choose, I'd go with Crimson Ninja. And it's on the Lily Auction right now, cheap.

Also good, and maybe my favorite, John Benz's Big Red Macaw. Strong, vigorous plants, a great performer, and it repeats; three sets of strong, wiry, three-way-branched scapes a season. Not "AHS" three-way branching, I mean a top cluster plus three long side branches coming out of the main scape, spaced from high to low, at near-45° angles. The way we used to count branches.

And finally, Wilkie's Land Of The Free. Top-notch here last year, it's first season. Big, always opens well, great saturated color.

Spider or spider-ish.. (Thanks to all those who contributed their lovely photographs)

One I bought this year "Axl Rose" .. 35"

Got this one last year, haven't seen it bloom yet "Envy Me" ...38"

One I bought last summer, hasn't bloomed yet "Lilting Belle"... 36"

Purple, but bright. Bought fall of 2016, bloomed in 17, loved it! "Ocean Spirit"... 40"

Another one I bought last year, bloomed nicely for me. I don't have a photo of this uploaded. "Orchid Corsage" ...32"

Try the database- you'll find tons more that fit your characteristics there...
