Does anyone know which daylily this might be? It was given to me but had no tag.

Gardengirl74, my guess is "Siloham Double Classic" if the bloom scapes are on the short side. Around sixteen inches give or take a few inches.

It's more of a golden yellow peachy colorz with maybe a little pink on edge and doesn't have much of green throat. It's also a little taller than 16 inches that Siloam Double Classic is listed as. I'm going to order Siloam Double Classic just to compare though because that ones on my list. My Very. Long. List.... lol

I don't see the blending of colours on SDC that are in the ID plant. It reminds me a bit more of 'Dublin Elaine'.

I have both too, my SDC is a more even pink. Not saying it is definitely 'Dublin Elaine' but the blended colours seemed similar to me. Do we know when the ID daylily flowers in relation to other daylilies?

Daylilies are blooming here in June (Zone 4) so wouldn't your NOID be blooming towards the end of your daylily season there?

This one pictured below is probably too early then ('Frances Joiner'), but has similar coloration (depending on the camera, I don't have this one). You could do a search of the AHS or NGA daylily database, because there aren't all that many late doubles and the colour should narrow it down. 'Siloam Double Classic' is typically earlier flowering than FJ and DE.

I went through the AHS book Doubles are Twice the Fun and didn't find anything similar. Do you have any idea how old this cultivar is, was it a bonus from an order of newer daylilies, or from an older garden? It's very difficult to identify daylilies with 80,000 registered cultivars many of which are quite similar but being late and double might help with this one.

I kept thinking that this looks like a Joiner daylily, so did a search. Just throwing this out there to see what you guys think. I don't grow this one, so I don't know about the bloom season. The database just says midseason.

22" tall with 6" bloom.

Wonderful! I think you have determined that yours is not S. Double Classic. It is one of me earlier blooming plants, the 1st few blooms are almost always single, but then it shapes up to consistently double. Blooms a long time, but I have a large clump.

I agree that this is NOT SDC, I have grown that for years, and this isn't it. It is a very uniform bloom for me.

Yes this one looks like the picture I posted every time. I usually don't go for these colors but it is a gorgeous flower and is one of my favorites.
