ID possibilities?

With the overwhelming amount of daylily cultivars out there I do not know how you could possibly keep them straight but If anybody recognizes any of these I would appreciate that. I had acquired them from different places like this large lily farm that was 'You dig'. No names though. I have several more that I have not taken photos of yet. Photos aren't the greatest, sorry. I rescued these from a border that had since grown wild. I remembered putting them there years ago to save them during a construction project. Went back to look and saw the flowers peeking out of the weeds.

Is Chinese Autumn a possibility for your last picture?

Here is a link that might be useful: Chinese Autumn

the second could be Red Volunteer

RE: ID possibilities?

I would agree with the two suggestions made. It would help if photos were from an overcast day, as sun glare can make it more difficult to recognize cultivars.

RE: ID possibilities?

I knew the sun was a problem..I dug them out and cut them back. They were buried in brush. The picture of chinese autumn certainly looks just like that one. I hope the other is Red Volunteer. It was growing in a terrible situation and was loaded with buds. Thanks. I also grabbed a nice purple one but the flowers broke off extracting it from the thicket. It was an unusual daylily shopping trip to say the least. I soaked them overnight in a barrel and planted them the next day.
