Daylily 'Red Volunteer'

Bought a potted daylily at Lowe’s/Home Depot that was labeled as white, but it turned out to be this gorgeous red velvet. Still wish it had been the white one. It’s planted near the crepe myrtle by the driveway.

Visited with Tom Talley of the daylily society at the Benton Farmers Market on 6-1-2014. Described this to him and he felt pretty sure it was probably Red Volunteer. Researched it online and I think he’s probably right, but since it was mislabeled, I can’t really know for sure.

This planting is in the Front Foundation Border East garden .
