For a big flowered daylily with simplistic color that is very noticable, this one works very well. It has a bold color. Truly care free. I have noticed the leaves tend to be a bit on the yellow side, I dont know if this is cultural or genetic.

This is a truly beautiful plant! It's sturdy and vigorous and blooms like crazy. The flower color is less gold and more like Tang - the drink powder, a very bright citrusy orange with a faint white midrib. It's not garish, but rather soft and bright at the same time. I love this daylily! It's also one of the more affordable cultivars, which makes buying several of these to plant in mass a possibility for the gardener with limited funds.
