RE: purple hems

As a youngster, I didn't care where the roadside "tiger" daylilies came
from.  I just enjoyed their happy appearance, literally in ditches all up
and down the two main roads in the community.

Now I am looking at botanical names and it is really confusing.  I may have
two that look identical to me, but whoever labeled them had completely
different names for the pair.  Harking back to the younger days, knowing I'm
not great hybridizer, I'm just enjoying their happy appearances.
