|While I have grown this plant for a few years, I cannot give a fair evaluation of its performance as it has been suffering in a 1.5 gallon pot all this time.
It performs as a dormant, here in my Zone 9 garden.
I will say that while the color stands out and is attractive from a distance, up close the blooms (which have a yellow-to-gold underlay) appear to be somewhat muddy (at least to my eyes). That would make it a middle or back of the border daylily, in my book.
The current avatar image is that of a volunteer daylily seedling showing cristation.

These two pictures were taken exactly one year apart of each other. I always find it interesting how a daylily can vary in color due to soil and weather conditions. I like that it is a taller daylily and that it holds its color in the heat of the day. It's nice to see the color even at the end of a hot day, as it does not fade out. It increases fairly well for me and makes a striking clump. It is a keeper in my book.
