It should be noted that 'Ruby Stella' is NOT a registered cultivar name. It's just a catch-all nickname given to any unidentified all red daylily by nurseries.

the same also holds true for the name 'Stella In Red'. completely bogus name.

This is a very nice daylily. The flowers are rougly the size of Stella De Oro. The flowers open up very dark, but fade to a slightly dark but muted rose red contrasting against the yellow interior. I have to see how well it reblooms. I have had trouble seeing the difference between this plant and Pardon Me.

beauty and hardiness, so far.

This is a Ruby version of the Stella De Oro. I planted two of them about a 6 weeks ago and they have not dissappointed me. Flower is Deep Ruby Red with Green and Yellow Streaked throats. It is already on it's second set of blooms.
