My darkest DIP. Appears black in real life.

Very nice - looks much like Smith Brothers.

But Smith Brothers is a TET, and this is a DIP. I have 2 almost black DIPs: this one and Fata Morgana; then I have 2 TETs: Night Whispers and Caribbean Midnight Vespers, which is in the mail & I should get it Monday or Tuesday.

I like this colour! Sometimes Smith Brothers has a fine white border when it is a cool day or rainy weather! :)

Although this is described as being oxblood red, it is looking blacker than that.

DIP and TET refers to chromosomes. There are 2 types of daylilies: Diploid has 22 chromosomes and Tetraploids have 44. The two types will never cross with the other. The proper names are named daylilies, and the easiest way to follow is to open a second tab to Tinkers Garden ( and search for the varieties there. It has pictures, parentage and offspring, also habits to see what to expect.
