    Mine looks most like #1. I get less of the apricot center and more of a darker smoky rose color. This is my favorite daylily color out of 40 lily’s I have. My favorite for
    “see it a block away” is “Wild horses”.

    I purchased Smoky Mountain Autumn last fall, and I could hardly wait until this Spring to see if she would bloom. It was well worth the wait. She has produced 4 bloom scapes with 3-4 buds on each scape. In my garden, Smoky Mountain Autumn looks exactly like the photos shown and she adds a beautiful pop of color to my garden as well as a subtle sweet fragrance. You can’t go wrong with this daylily and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a bright almost tropical color in their garden. As always, Oakes always provides the largest and healthiest plants and I simply won’t buy my daylilies anywhere except from Oakes. They absolutely produce the best daylilies around. You can’t go wrong with this daylily and with Oakes.

    When they say early season and 18 inches, they mean it. It’s fast out of the gates and short. The form is very good and the color blend is gorgeous but subtle — the up close ‘n personal type rather than the “see it from a block away” type like, say, Eye-yi-yi or Red Volunteer. Because of the early season bloom and short height, I have some ‘Smokies’ as part of the border of my large tall bearded iris garden. This daylily helps take the edge off the minor melancholy that sometimes sets in when the spectacular but short iris bloom has run its course. Consider it as a border companion to an iris garden or any border area where an early pop of fine daylily form and color will be appreciated.

    This flower has the honor of being the most magnificent pink on the market. It is without a doubt a daylily I could not live without. Very classy!

    This is the first year for our Smoky Mountain Autumn to bloom and the color and shape are beautiful and did not disappoint. Was a bit disappointed in the size of the scape; wish it was a bit taller to hold the gorgeous flower up a bit more to be admired. Perhaps I should have put it into a container.

    This is the first time Smoky Mountain Autumn has bloomed for me, and it is breath taking! On the website, there is an image 1 and an image 2. My flowers look just like image 2, and they are so gorgeous. It is probably my favorite daylily, and I have many of them.
