Thanks, Danita! That's definitely it. I've never seen one before. The page you linked to wasn't kidding when they said it attracted butterflies.

Thanks @Calif_Sue for importing the pictures to the database! I was a little busy over in the Daylily forum.

I just realized there weren't any photos of it in the database! Glad we got it identified and added!
