Pretty sure your flower is not 'Pardon Me'. 'Pardon Me' has a recurved less open form, ruffled edges and green in the throat.

I agree with Sue.

Hmm...do you think it could be Red Volunteer? Here are a few more pics I just took:

Mine is RED, right? My eyes aren't just deceiving me with some odd shade of dark pink? *squints at pictures of red daylilies* Confused

I think yours could maybe be described as raspberry but probably would be included in red. Cameras and light vary so trying to match by colour in the database would be difficult (not to mention that over 80,000 daylily cultivars have been registered over the years to trying to identify one can be impossible unless there is something very distinctive about it).

'Red Volunteer' is a very rich colour, I have it here although it is not in flower yet this season, and the yellow throat is bigger than your flower. It also tends to have a more triangular look to it.

That is good information! Thanks Sue! I'll keep looking...it's a pretty one regardless. Might be Raspberry Wine.




It's fun seeing all the varieties! Excuse me while I start a shopping list Whistling

Sara, Stella D'Oro expands (divides?) rapidly and thus soon develops many fans, with their accompanying scapes and buds. It is, therefore, a rather prolific bloomer. In my collection only a handful do that, and they all have small flowers.

Welcome! Sara!
From what I've read here, you're going to be diagnosed with the highly contagious, hemerohaulic fever! Big Grin

Sorry, no idea's about your red NOID.

I got bit by a garden bug just last year, it's quite infectious! Besides the NOID and Stella, I'm also taking this one. The previous homeowners here planted it behind the shed, so they're in shade 90% of the day, haven't even bloomed yet this year.

That one looks like either 'Kwanso' or 'Flore Pleno', hard to tell which from the two flowers. If you take that one, make sure to put it somewhere where its spreading into other plants isn't going to be a problem.

That's good to know! I couldn't tell from the pics of either of those which it is, so here's hoping for good pictures in the next couple years.

Smiling Have fun, flukybloom ---
When in doubt [ and am tired of looking for an ID ], I just name them.
I can hear dear souls going ..'no, no,no' ...
But, I do keep my sanity....

Enjoy your garden - mine is inherited [ named the Garden of Surprises ] because the people we bought the house from left blueprints of the house .... but not one word of what had been planted out front.
Am at 6 varieties [this yr] of day lily thingys and 11 of Iris .. plus all the other things that attract bees and butterflies...

Almost [ not quite ] at the point of planning a new garden .. taking up everything - putting some in pots, etc .... it has gotten too much to take care of daily... got to go simpler ...

Always an interesting year !

Live like every day as it is your last because one day -- it will be.
(if I can find who said this, I'll credit that dear Soul -- wasn't me, but it makes a lot of sense)

Many of us have daylilies growing in our gardens which, for various reasons we can't identify. We call them NOID's which stands for something like "no identification"

Just because we can't identify them doesn't mean we can't enjoy them!

Happy daylilying!

Peggy, we're moving on Thursday (eek!) and I'm leaving a blueprint of our flower bed for the new owners who have already confessed their lack of gardening. Makes me glad we're going to be 800 miles away and I can't drive by regularly. Excited to see if there's much landscaping at the new house, although it kind of looks like they preferred to just mow everything. Which is fine. That'd be less mess I have to muddle through.
