Scented daylilies??

Castelnau RB Pyrenée, France(Zone 8a)

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.

I've got "Fragrant Treasure". A very pretty yellow. It's the only one I really have that is very fragrant.

Rainbow Candy by Stamile is unusual AND fragrant. Allegheny Sunset is also fragrant.

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.

That's intresting John, I would love to have seed or plant if it have here might have at Home Depot.

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

Oh so sweet of you, thank you so, I will let you know if I find here. Thanks again 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!

thanks so much all of you, that's really put me on my way :)

Try Barbara Mitchell. It's very scented.

Newnan, GA(Zone 8a)

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!

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

I just bought "Fragrant Treasure" at Home Depot for $3.33!!! Woo hoo! They have all their perennials except for Clematis 3/$10.00 right now.

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.

put this into a Custom Query at Tinker's:

frag like 'vfr' or frag like 'f'

Mmmm that's a beauty, thanks pixie!

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......

Jamestown, KY(Zone 6a)

GUDRID is fragrant also. You don't have to put your nose way down in it to smell

Waddy, KY

I have a block of BEST KEPT SECRET and I've discovered that it's fragrant.


Castelnau RB Pyrenée, France(Zone 8a)

Oh, it's lovely to have your own personal experiences, thanks I'll look those two up :)

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