I bought this one from a lady who said it was a yellow..but when it bloomed this is what I got..very pretty surprise..the colour sort of leans towards burgundy orange. Digital camera doesn't always show true colour.

I've checked the Lily database and I think it is called Autumn Red

Want to hear a funny/ironic coincidence? I had a newly-planted daylily send up yellow blooms this year. It sure looked like Stella d'oro to me. But I pulled out its plant tag, only to find it was marked 'Autumn Red' (I had received it in a trade :)

Sounds like our plants were "switched at birth" huh? I agree (from a very novice status) that it looks like Autumn Red. But then again, there are soooo many daylily cultivars it's really hard to know for sure.

That is a strange co-incidence! The yellow daylily that this lady had growing in her garden was pure yellow and the petals glistened in the had rounded petals..not pointed..I should go back to her and ask if she has any more for sale. I found one close to it at the garden centre..Carolyn I at least have my yellow..and I am sure it will spread in time.I like this one though..(we'll call it Autumn Red)..and having the yellow centre will be a nice harmony with the Carolyn Criswell.
I have several Stella's..and they are very pretty..but lean more to a golden yellow.
Cheers, Carol
