For me at least. The winner is: Hemerocallis 'Daylily Crimson Pirate'. Came out looking really wonderful! Picture taken this morning after a light rain. It really added naturalism I thought.

I have lots of Daylillies I'm still waiting on but none of the Stella D' Oro yellows I think you are referring to. Still have orange (tigers) as well as some Little Missy I'm still waiting on. That Crimson Pirate is the one and only.

Nice! I have a bunch of typical oranges, and 6 one of a kinds that came from a friends breeding program. They didn't fit in to his vision of what he was trying to develop, but they're real beauties. Won't be in bloom for a couple months though.

Subrosa: I have attempted a few crosses myself but Idk what the success rate will be. I crossed an Easter pupu with a Hemorocallis Crimson Pirate and crossed a Durango and Easter lily. Will probably try more as things bloom. I have three Double Tiger Oranges that are developing buds and I cannot wait for.

I'll get pics up when these bloom. I plan to move them this fall, so I figure I'll divide them and put some fans up in next years NASC auction.

I just got a good idea for a cross... A "Florugense" which Is a longiflorum x lankongense cross x Landini. Can you imagine a dark, spotted Landini that hangs downwards like the Florugense? Awesome!
