I'd like to grow scented daylilies, but am very new to the family (and DG). Wondered if you know of a site which would give this info - or whether any of you have experience of particular cultivars. Looking at catalogue lists is v frustrating as often they don't say.
I already have Catherine Woodberry, but not sure where to go from here.

You would love Hemerocallis flava, the lemon lily. Blooms very early in spring with a delicious lemon scent. Also, 'Hyperion' is a large citron-yellow daylily with a lemony scent later in the season.

REDROSE, lemon lily, Hemerocallis flava, will come true from seeds. I will save you some this year, if you don't find any plants by then. Or I can send you a division later on as well. John

I had a lemon lily but some how I lost it. While cleaning up beds last year I dug it up to relocate it. I set the plant down somewhere "safe"... and never found it again. I looked all over for that daylily! I even went through the compost pile looking for it ... thinking I might have accidently thrown it in with some weeds. It bugged me all summer that I never found it. I think it just grew legs and walked off while I had my back turned. I'm known for misplacing seeds... but now plants too!

this is great news! I have H. flava and Barbara Mitchell and didn't know either was scented. I just got them last year. Now I can hardly wait!

Bumping this as daylilies seem to love it here in France and it would be great to hear more suggestions - thanks very much for those already made.

JIM'S SONG is a gorgeous deep red (not burgundy, not velvety, just deep red) with a yellow throat, and is very fragrant. Pictures on the net do NOT do justice to this one.

I feel very foolish - I've just found the search facility, ABSOLUTELT BRILLIANT!!
All the answers are in there. I hadn't read the resources thread properly
Anyway, thanks for all your help, I'm disappearing into search mode for utter indulgence. Mind you, I don't know how many I select will be available in France...

Not a daylily, but Casablanca is wonderfully scented. On a warm evening, the fragrance drifts over the garden and is so soothing!
