Late August Daylilies in Philadelphia

August 28: Nature Girl, Grape Magic, Little Wine Cup, Stella; Unknown Rose, Point of View, unknown from Ladybug; two Happy Returns.
8/29: Little Wine Cup & Grape Magic; Scentual Sundance, Bridal Path, the last Angelique in Satin; Big Time Happy, Happy Returns and Stella.
Anybody know what this is? I bought Skinwalker from Ladybug and got this- but I like this better! It's only 6.5 inches but always neat.

This is also a beautiful daylily, diamond dusted and throwing an extra petaloid or two, but not a double. This is last bloom for this year. But it's not what I bought- any ideas?

Mid August Daylilies in NJ / PA

August is a difficult time to find daylilies blooming: here are some that work for me.

August 18 blooms in Philadelphia, PA
From Left to Right by rows: Just Plum Happy, my mystery rose pink, Panic Button, Rosy Returns, and Bridgeton Eyecatcher. Scentual Sundance, Innocent Bystander, So Lovely, & Point of View. Last Rewards, Little Wine cup, Night Vision, Showtime Now, & Sunset Returns. Stella and Happy Returns.

August 19: Catherine Folker, Siloam Double Fringe, Double Mandarin, & Tuscawilla Tigress.
Mask of Eternity, Skinwalker, Laura Harwood, & Fox Ears. Shwotime Now, Night Vision, Last Reward, Point of View, & Bridgeton Eyecatcher. Innocent Bystander, Little Wine Cup, Panic Button & Stella D'Oro.
Reblooms from August 20 (below): Happy Returns, Stella D'Oro, Grape Magic, Little Wine Cup, and Double Ethel. The first 4 I recommend for dependable if not exciting August and September rebloom. Double Ethel always looks rumpled and the washed rose eye is too subtle for me.

August 21: Scentual Sundance, Clueless, Laura Harwood, Just Plum Happy, & Innocent Bystander. Double Ethel, Fox Ears, Skinwalker, & Topguns Metha Scott. Little Wine Cup & Grape Magic. Stella D'Oro, Rosy Returns, Apricot Sparkles, Ruddy Spreckles (NR), & Happy Returns.
