My plant is labeled Fugitive and it bloomed for the first time today. There aren't a lot of pictures out there on the internet to really compare and it is so hard to convince cameras not to enrich the colors. So this is what it looks like:

and the picture from my iphone6s

Out of the plants that I had ordered, there are no other ones that this could be, Spicy Connection is kind of similar but that bloomed the other day as well as Griffin Miller. Honestly, it looks more like Volcanic Explosion than Fugitive.

I can't really compare heights, because everything in this garden this year appears to be on the short side and Fugitive and Volcanic Explosion are essentially the same height with the same flower size.

Regardless of what it is, I really like it. I just want to make sure I have things labeled correctly.

I think I would give it time, it is similar enough that future blooms may look more like you expect. I've certainly had it happen to new daylilies, one I was convinced was the wrong plant, but looked right the next year.

It looks like Fugitive to me. I saw it on the Maryott's website last season.
