    One of my first daylilies and still a strong favourite, vigorous plant of soft primrose to light lemon depending upon the weather. In the UK sometimes the eye is a thin pencilled eye but other times it can be wider and verging on chalky, either way it is lovely.

    Hasn't been fertile for me BUT it was sold as a TET and is always described as a tet but I notice that it is recorded as a dip. on this site and has child plants which are all dip. so I plan to treat it as a dip. next year and hope to get seed crosses
