These are some of the daylilies I have. They were all given to me or bought many years ago. I have no idea what the names are?

And the last one. It's my first time posting and I don't know how to post multiple pics on a single post

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

I will take a guess. Perhaps number one is Chicago Apache, not real sure though, it is so hard with the reds. Could number 2 be Nile Crane? The one I am most sure of is number 4 is Prairie Blue Eyes.
I would be curious what others think.

Thank you for your input I think you are right on about the prairie blue eyes. I looked it up and I'm pretty sure it's the same. The other two I'm not as sure about but they are close. Thank you anyways.

Number 2 looks like Catherine Woodbery. The second last looks to me like ditch lilies - Fulva Europa a species of daylily that is found everywhere in the ditches.

#4 might be IndianGiver , here's a picture of mine. Marg http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/ss132/marg_2009/Daylilies/IndianGiver-2.jpg

I agree that 2 looks like Catherine Woodbery, but I don't think #4 is Indian giver, because it doesn't have the fine white edge. Here is mine.

I agree you might have a ditch lily there too.

Thank you guys all so much. I'm very appreciative of your knowledge of daylilies. I now am pretty sure what two of my daylilies are. In the spring I am going to divide most of them, and when I do I will label the ones I now know. If anyone else has suggestions please post. I am fifteen so I am pretty new to all the different types of daylilies, but I am learning. Thank you guys so much again.

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions on the names, but if that second to last picture is Fulva Europa, you may not want to plant it with other flowers. As a species daylily, it has stolons (underground runners) instead of roots like the cultivars that we normally talk about here and can be invasive.

Good luck with your dividing!

Picture number one struck me on first sight as Chicago Apache. I think you have Prairie Blue eyes also. You might have bright sunset in there. I need to make notes before I post so I can put numbers on things! This is fun! I didn't see Indian Giver in any of your pictures

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

Thank you guys for your input. I will be making name tags and a notebook for all of my daylilies. You guys are so nice and helpful on this forum. I hope everyone has a good growing year, and thanks again.

Could that nice red with the watermark be Magic Carpet Ride?

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

If the fifthe one (with watermark) is more purple in person than the photo shows-Could it be Vintage Wine? Purples don't always photograph true to color.

NO NAME? Does it realy matter?

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

These are some of the daylilies I have. They were all bought couple years ago. I have no idea what the names are? Please Help.

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

I agree, that first one looks like Chicago Apache. CA blooms smack dab in the middle of summer for me. One clump will give me a bit of late rebloom, but most clumps don't. Mid height, around 28 inches for me, 5" flower. Do these details match your plant?

RE: Need help trying to name these daylilies

The first one could be Chicago Apache, but if it is a striking rosy red, it might be Charles Johnston. It is hard to tell from the picture. Chicago Apache is a true red. I definitely do not think it is Magic Carpet Ride.
