Seeking name of old yellow daylily

ann_tx8(z8/East Texas)October 22, 2013

I am trying to find the name of an old--perhaps heirloom-yellow daylily. The petals are more slender than rounded and a bright yellow. The throat has a slight hint of green or chartreuse. It has a lemon scent.

Mine was given to me several years ago and has been a prolific grower and bloomer, but I lost it this year to drought/deer/and grasshoppers. Will appreciate any suggestions you might offer. Thank you.

One of the species daylilies maybe? Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus has the common name of lemon lily for its scent. Check Olallie daylily gardens

Thanks so much. I believe ngraham came closest and I'm going to order. However, that Arlow-Stout, although it doesn't look like the one I'm looking for is gorgeous and I will see if I can find that one as well.

I appreciate both of you trying to help.
