    The bicolor daylily often sold as 'Magic Dawn' is believed to often be 'Howdy'. The registered 'Magic Dawn' is a rose pink self. See the American Hemerocallis Society's Daylily Journal of Fall 2011, page 20.

    I am curious about the accuracy of this color description of "Howdy" above: "ORD/GYL3: Orange red dark petals with orange dark sepals bicolor"?
