I think the the colors are clear and the flower is very beautiful (and I'm not a big fan of UFO's), but the scapes mostly lodge (sprawl on the ground). My experience is far from unique.

This is my very favorite Daylily! I love it! I got when it was introduced in 2001. I've listed it first on the list for the American Hemercallis Society List every year since then. It is destined for greatness! Don't have a photo right now, but will post it when I can. Beautiful!!!
