The Gardener’s Answer

Hello, Carolyn: Fortunately and unfortunately, there are literally hundreds of cultivars of daylilies. This can make the demand for some not so great and therefore they are not commonly found in the trade. After an extensive search, I was not able to find a single grower that has Hemerocallis ‘Kelly Ann’ on their list. I contacted Patrick Guidry at Guidry’s Daylily Garden thinking that if anyone grew this cultivar it would be him, but it turns out this daylily was hybridized by a lady named Lucille Guidry in his hometown but of no relation. She has since closed her garden center because of illness. According to the American Daylily Society, ‘Kelly Ann’ is a cross between ‘Little Brandy’ and ‘Rose Tiara.’ The bloom is 6 inches in diameter with rose pink petals and a green throat. It grows to be 30 inches tall and is said to be very fragrant. I have not heard back from the Daylily Society but I will certainly let you know when I do. I appreciate your patience and hopefully there is someone out there still growing this cultivar!
