Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth's Dream') sure is a beautiful Daylily!

I found it for sale at Oakes Daylilies: https://www.oakesdaylilies.com...

The company is highly recommended by other NGA members and you can read their recommendations on this page: Oakes Daylilies

Lin, that link goes to a daylily called 'Dream Blue' not 'Ruth's Dream'. I put in a request to transfer the question to the daylily forum.

Interesting ... it shows above their photo as 'Ruth's Dream' but when you click on the photo, it shows the name as 'Dream Blue'. Confused Perhaps someone needs to contact Oakes Daylilies about their catalog.

I think that's probably an "artefact" of their search function, Lin, it shows the search terms at the top of the results and the result is just the nearest to that name that they have.

Thank you so much everyone! I'm looking for any breeds that pertain to "Ruth" as my friend is making a memorial garden of daylilies to her mother, Ruth. I have located "Ruth's Love' and am thrilled at the prospect of obtaining "Ruth's Dream", thank you!!! Thank You!

Update: Debbie at Oakes was wonderful, very helpful and tried to locate Ruth's Dream but to no avail. I called Iron Gate Gardens at her suggestion but they were closed and their website is down so no luck their either. Any other suggestions anyone might have would be much appreciated--thank you for caring, y'all!

I had no idea there were so many Daylilies that included Ruth in the name. Here are listings for a few others besides Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth's Dream') and Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth Love') that you might want to seek out for the memorial garden.

Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruthie')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Dear Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Song of Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Mama Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Book of Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Lady Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Love of Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth's Shining Star')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Remembering Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Miss Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruthie's Beauty')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Ruth's Scarlet Star')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Cheers from Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Dear Miss Ruth')
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Amazing Ruth')

You might try Bob Selman, Blue Ridge Daylilies. The second image in the database has in the caption "Bonus plant from Blue Ridge Daylilies".
