A friend's wife, who was named Cara, recently died and he is planting a memorial garden for her. He's looking for 'Cara Mia' daylily. It's an old variety but not sold anywhere that I can find. Anyone have it?

I don't have this one but there are some pictures posted on Dave's Garden. Perhaps you could contact the poster and see if you could get a piece? Marg

an English nursery was the only one I found with it for sale. Probably,Marric had the best idea

RE: Hemerocallis 'Cara Mia'

Try a GOOGLE search for 'Historic Daylilies' as CARA MIA is in that category. There are several USA nurseries that specialize in the older (Pre-1970)cultivars, usually as a sideline to more modern varieties. Good luck in your search.

Thanks for your suggestions, everyone! I'm still looking...

Clfo found me (I'm the widower)an Anam Cara which is beautiful. Still haven't found the Cara Mia. It's a little confusing which is which but I'm uploading the picture of the Anam Cara (Gaelic for "Soul Friend).
