Sorry, I didn't get a photo of it this summer, but I think there is one in the Plant Files or at Tinkers.
It has a big bright yellow bloom.
No Way! I had no idea they came in six footers! Wow!
I bought stratovolcano from the dablaw/ notmartha coop because it was 60" tall and orange. That is the only tall one I have. I am marking this thread as I would like to find a couple more.

So, how tall do you consider tall?
How about 40"?
Here's one that I planted this Spring, so it hasn't reached it's potential for me yet.

Daylily Jolly Red Giant
P. Stamile 1999
(Star of India x Long Stocking)
Description: Jolly Red Giant introduced by P. Stamile in 1999. 8" x 2 ¼" x 1 ½ inch blooms on 68 inch scapes. 6 way branching. 56 buds. Unusual Form - pinched and twisted crispate. "I dislike writing in superlatives such as the most ruffled, the heaviest substance, etc. since it presumes the writer knows the entire world of daylilies. In growing daylilies for 20+ years including the species Altissima and the Challenger hybrids, I can say that I have never seen a daylily as tall as JOLLY RED GIANT. JOLLY RED GIANT towers over mere 5’ tall Altissima and Challenger hybrids and at 5’8" can be used in place of a small shrub or tree. This is truly a fun flower for those who want bragging rights for the "tallest". Being evergreen it may not grow as tall in the North but here in the South the first scapes bloom at 68" and rebloom just shy of 6’. Very strong well branched erect scapes." Pod sterile but pollen fertile. Very slight fragrance.
Foliage Habit: Evergreen
Flower Size: 8" x 2 ¼" x 1 ½" Height: 68"
Bloom Season: Early
Repeat Bloomer: yes
Price: 1 Double fan plant $15.00

Margo Reed seems to have some very tall ones. I just love 'Dances With Giraffes'. Here's a link:
5-6' tall, and is LOADED with blooms! My plant is pure yellow blooming, and the one pictured at Tranquil Lake is a very different plant.
Challenger is another very tall daylily.
these are wonderful. thank you so much for taking the time to show me these pictures. you don't have to stop, though.
janet, that flower that is pink............you described it as tea yellow? what does that mean? the altissima hybrid is the one i am talking about. and what is it's name? and what's an altissima? and a challenger?
http://www.daylily.net/piedmontperennials/margo_reed_daylilies/new_intros.htm, one of the links I found...
here is another...http://www.bloomingfieldsfarm.com/chal.html
and this is the one with the most and best to me:
Hope those help...
mama jack ,
i s the name of day lilly it isnt given a common name
just the species name
im not sure on the tea ye;;pw think it a tan yellow ? and maybe not
tazzy, i didn't get what you said about altissima. are you saying that altissima is a species plant? and they are very tall generally?
The name of the pink one in question is Magenta Princess...you can find it at the last link I provided. Sorry I didn't label it with the name...I am not sure either about the tea yellow thing...when it's name is Magenta..sounds pink to me..LOL but it is pretty for sure! Have a great day!
I understand that Jack Temple has a new spider or uf that the flower is 16" across.I believe he named it ALDERGATE.
I did a search and could not find it listed on Tinkers or the AHS registration.I think Spunky[Fred Manning] of Lillian AL is selling for Tom.Does anyone have this one?
Charlie.. I think you had trouble findingit becasue you left out an "s" Aldersgate will work for you :)
Jazz thanks.You are so correct. ALDERSGATE it is.I looked it up on the AHS registration and it is listed at 34" tall with a 16" bloom.
I forgot to mention that LIME PEEL had scapes over 6' when in a clump last year.It is listed at 3' 2" with a 9.5 " flower.It must have been the chicken litter and alfalfa pellets.
I think that Dan Bachman is still offering some of his "seedlings" for sale. I purchased some from him with MASCARA SNAKE as one of the parents, and the majority of them are tall.
If you like spidery types, you may want to email Dan or check out his website. If you don't want seedlings, I'm sure he would make some good recomendations for you.
His seedlings are really clumps of 2 or 3 year old seedlings.
Here's one I have ... CHALLENGER x MASCARA SNAKE.
Notice I have to reach up to the bloom and I'm 5'2
Here's a link to a thread where I was showing off some of my Dan Bachman Seedlings ........
I have ordered some from him for 3 years in a row now, and I always get some beauties.
I dug up all my "Mascara Snake" one's this year and moved them to a new garden area. Lined them all up along a split rail fence. I divided them up, so it they may not perform as well next year, but it should be beautiful when they do and worth the wait.
Wow that is just beautiful! I never dreamed there wer daylilies that got to be six and seven feet tall...now I NEED some of them..LOL
