I browsed through the sit and think I might have ID'd the three noids that have bloomed.

Elegant Candy? Bloom size is about right..

Elegant Explosion? Bloom size and color matches and does have the olive green throat...

Hyperion? Didn't do a sniff check for fragrance. Hope it is, it is one daylily I really wanted to add since I like fragrant flowers.

The pink ones looks like Janice Brown, it is very common grows fast and is inexpensive.

@Frillylily Thanks for the lead- it does look a lot like Janice Brown. I'll check the scape height/bloom size tomorrow.

Janice Brown has been a very slow grower here in my garden! Good to know it does much better in some other gardens.

I can say that I don't think it is elegant candy, I have that. Also if this is their first year, they may not reach full height and such. they will look better next year after settling in.

Today's blooms. This is their first bloom season but second season in the ground.

Janice Brown is still my vote so far on that.

FrillyLily, Janice Brown it is!
Wonder if Gilbert Wild could confirm that they had this last summer. I know they tilled under a bunch of cultivars and it's not listed on their site...

possibly, I don't deal with them anymore. They have bad customer service and I got so tired of getting daylilies that were not what I ordered and they don't honor a guarantee.

Hmm.. I've ordered daylilies from them once and just ordered hostas from them. I had a plant keel over shortly after planting and they refunded the purchase... I guess I'll take my chances with an email- the worst they can do is not respond...

I wouldn't order daylilies there anyway, but I know from a peony order that there is a 100% guarantee that some, if not all, cultivars will be not true to name and that you will have to fight like hell to get them to give something other than a store credit, in which you once again make a grab-bag purchase.
