SOLVED: Gentle Shepherd Daylily?

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! :)

actually dave, my gentle shepherd has yellow undertones. could be the difference in our dirt, ph, or something I don't know.

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.

dave I have a good pic of mine in the pdb if you care to look. very similar, but no pink tones.

Cala, I have two, the one you gave me and another. and they are a perfect match.

Here are two links:

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!

Dave, try Oakes Daylily site. They have some photos too. Do you remember where you got it?
