I have both Kwanso and Apricot Beauty..they are both beautiful, but you can't confuse them..totally different blooms.

This daylily is known as Kwanso. Photos on the internet of Apricot Beauty show either this one or a lovely pale peach/apricot single self. Therefore, it is confusing to figure out what exactly this daylily is.

"Apricot Beauty" to my eye, is neither apricot, nor much of a beauty. I really can't see any difference between this daylily and the old orange standby "Kwanso".
