Daylily 'Black Eye' (Hemerocallis)

So many polytepal daylilies today, they should have 3 petals and three sepals but as you can see this one has 5 of each :-)

Another lovely one. I've just discovered Grape Velvet and Forever Jung have fantastic perfumes, so now on the lookout for others the same in colours to suit my different "gardens".

Thankyou all, this ones doing so much better since I moved it it seemed to sit doing not a lot for a few years but now its in the daylily bed its doing great,
Funny you should mention scent Tetrarch I bought a new one last year called Curly Cinnamon Windmill and noticed yesterday what a lovely scent it has :-)

Lol! I love how you say "I bought -A- new one last year"...just one??
I've been going around the garden sniffing all the varieties I have and a surprising good few have reasonable perfume.

Oooops you know me to well Tetrarch :-)
I haven't bought any this year though!!!!!!, although I have had a few sent to me by some very kind friends on here and another site, also have well over 150 seedlings on the go and with the encouragement of Wylieintheazores I'm having a go at hybridizing with my own this year :-)
