RE: Lemon Lily name


I haven'y been keeping up with garden chat as I've been working on a daylily
project almost non-stop.  Possibly someone has answered your post already,
but what I could find is that the Lemon Lily is mentioned in botanical
literature as early a 1570 under the name Asphodelus luteus liliflorus. In
1762, it received the name Hemerocallis flava by Linnaeus.  There are a few
different clones circulating with this name.

I got this information from Hemerocallis The Daylily by R.W. Munson, Jr..
He was a well known hybridizer. The species daylilies are a group unto
themselves!  Some people are really into them.  I have a few, but not H.

Subject: [CHAT] Lemon Lily name

I need to make a seed packet label for Lemon Lily. I had done it for
Lilium parryi, but now they tell me the seed is from Hemerocallis
lilio-asphodelus. OK, but I'm getting mixed signals on the intenet on
the name. Some sites mention that this Hem and H. flava both use the
name while other say that H.l-a is a synonym for H. flava. Does anyone
know if these are the same plant? I'm sort of a stickler for getting the
name right.
