I've grown this daylily, FRED HAM, since 1996. It is not a grand bloomer (so far -- I've moved to better dirt!) but the flowers are more intricate than "yellow." It is triangular in shape, gold-edged lemon cream with a green throat, 7" across. When it blooms, it is a standout. One of these years I'll get a photo of it!
