Is this the Gentle Shepherd Daylily? It's almost pure white with a very slight suggestion of pink to the petals.

I checked the PDB and there appears to be a whopping 6 cultivars of daylily that are white, so that certainly narrows it down for me.

Thanks if you can help! :)

Dave there has to be a thousands of white daylilies out there. Did you have Gentle Shepherd or are you just guessing that's what it could be? It would be impossible to really ID it unless you had the two plants side by side.

Here are two links:

http://www.rjnet.com/cgi-bin/daylilysearch/intralinks/store.cgi

http://www.daylilies.net/IF-G100.htm

Each has a photo and description; neither mentions a pink tint.

P.S., Dave, remember we haven't added colors to all the Hems in the PDB, so any search for color will be misleading :(

That settles it then. It could be one of, as Poppysue says, a thousand daylilies. Thanks for the good effort friends!
