hi guys, im new to this forum, so forgive me if this topic has been discussed in the past. I was given Show Winner last year and have not been able to find any info on it at all. when i try to look it up online, i am bombarded with every daylily that has ever won a show/award. does anyone know anything about it? thanks!

Sorry, but are you sure it wasn't simply a winner at a show instead of the name?

I don't think AHS would even accept a name like that under their rules. Could be someone's nickname for a plant.

There is no registered daylily called Show Winner. Could it possibly be Stakes Winner by John Rice?

This name would be prohibited under the AHS Database registration rules ( rules that AHS must follow under ICNCP in order to remain the official registering body for the genus hemerocallis.)
So this is obviously not a registered cultivar and can be regarded as a seedling! It is a shame that people put unregistered cultivars out there in commerce, because all it does is confuse people and it makes some mad to learn they have bought an unregistered cultivar. Personally I have learned ( the hard way) to always check on whether a cultivar is registered before purchasing it.

thanks guys! i was given it by someone who is usually pretty good about keeping track of names...so im pretty sure it isnt a knickname. however, i guess that just leaves the only other option, that it is a seedling that someone named as show winner.

this is my 2nd summer with it, and i have to say that im not too impressed. we have about 65 different ones that we are strict about marking and keeping track of...so i know i didnt get them mixed up. however, this years bloom looks nothing like last years. i guess we'll never know! thanks!

RE: Show Winner

ahhh...okay. i just asked the guy where he got this one from. he said it came from wal-mart. weve had issues with getting the wrong ones from them. i probably have about 4 from them, that are not what they said they were. i dont know where wal-mart's supplier dug up the name show winner, but im not at all surprised now.

RE: Show Winner

this is the one that they had labeled as show winner...any id ideas? the first bloom last year was a double...but it has looked like this ever since.

RE: Show Winner

No id idea, but it is a pretty red.

Before I knew any better I also bought packs of daylily roots from Walmart. All of them grew and flowered nicely but neither was true to name. I am not sure about the ones in pots but those in packs come from Holland - notorious for mislabeling. I also got packs of lily bulbs from Holland (not at WM), also wrongly named.

RE: Show Winner

I too, bought some "bagged" daylily roots from Walmart back in February of this year. 'Show Winner' was one of them. Although I have not found it on the AHS site as a current registered cultivar ('Minnie Pearl' is not listed either), it did offer an attractive flower for me the first year of planting. I was a little disappointed in the fact that it was not as purple as the picture illustrated but we will see what next year brings.

RE: Show Winner

There is a registered plant named MINI PEARL. Again, what you bought might not be correctly labeled, but that is probably what they intended to label it as.

So they put two different daylilies in bags named Show Winner?!? Or maybe not even just two..
As for the names that's what they do I heard, just change the spelling slightly - like Moonlight Masquerade, Lady Betty Fritz, Sabina Bauer, etc

RE: Show Winner

yeah, im betting it wasnt just these two!

RE: Show Winner

I just grabed a bag of them at wal mart and was trying to find it on one of the daylily databases.

Found it here as well.

I bought several packages of daylilies at Walmart, this spring, half price, $2.65 each. One was Catherine Woodbery. I put two pieces of it in a pot and it immediately sent up a skinny scape. It had 7 buds at the top. It turned out to be a Stella de Oro when it bloomed. I also bought Show Winner. The package shows it to be purple with yellow-green eye. Several of the ones I've planted sure do look like Stella greenery. I will find out if and when they bloom.

I am an editor at a (Plant file data site)
Someone just added the Daylily 'Show Winner', but it is not registered as you know. We have to delete it. What is weird is the image is even different than the 2 above. It is a medium Pink with a purple eye!

RE: Show Winner

That's funny! They just need to stop giving those bag names :)
