The second was one I bought this year, in bud but not blooming. This was from Fred Meyer. It seems like there is a pattern here - the flower shape is similar to the photo, but the colors are not even close.
An argument can be made that the first year flower may not represent the plant, and the second year it might. I've seen that happen with bearded irises.
Daylilies are nice flowers, almost maintenance free, and tolerate a wide variety of conditions. I have every daylily I have bought. They just grow stronger and more vigorous with time. They make a nice border, among Spring bulbs that have long since finished blooming and foliage died down.
Not learning from previous experience, I bought two more at Lowes. Some were in bloom, but I wasn't thinking about buyer beware when I bought these, and picked out two that are almost blooming - for longer bloom time.
I'll be interested to see if "Fooled Me", fooled me. And to see if "Daring Deception" is a not so daring deception.
