ID help needed

Postby NancyL » Aug 07, 2013 8:22 am

Last year our Master Gardener gang was allowed access to the old San Souci iris nursery before it was brush hogged. The proprietor passed away and the people that bought the farm mowed the paths but let the beds fill with weeds. The last day after digging NOID Siberians and Japanese for 3 days in October heat I saw this daylily growing at the edge of a bed and I couldn't leave it although I didn't know what it would turn out to be. San Souci was known for remontants. I moved the plants up to upper MI and it is just blooming now. Transplant and cool summer has delayed all my daylilies here this year. Any ideas what this variety could be? It is medium/short height and is robust. It is a bi-color with alternating orange and red petals - just doesn't show well with my camera.

Sorry, but I don't know this one. Any chance that the nursery had some kind of price list out there?

Not for the daylilies - but for some reason the San Souci website for Irises still shows up even though the last record I have was from 2005 or so. This is the link to his 2004 stock which I hope still stays live in the ether until all those Siberians and Japanese bloom next year so I can use it for ID.

It reminds me a lot of Lake Normal Sunset.
