‘Connie Marks’ daylily was discovered in the cultivated area when it first bloomed during the summer of 2001 at a commercial nursery/garden center located in Culpepper, Virginia. The plant ‘Connie Marks’ was an asexual offspring of an American Hemerocallis society registered daylily named ‘Hyperion’ which was registered in 1925.

Asexual offspring refers to the fact that ‘Hyperion’ was the only other daylily growing in the nursery garden vicinity where ‘Connie Marks’ was discovered. The large ‘Hyperion’ clump had a smaller six fan, double yellow flowered ‘Connie Marks’ clump growing on its perimeter. ‘Hyperion’’s flowers are single. The plants has been successfully propagated by division methods at the same nursery to produce identical plants that maintain the unique characteristics of the original. Since 2001 the original six fan ‘Connie Marks’ has been repeatedly divided to produce numerous pants that are phenotypically identical.
