Eye Catching certainly draws the eye. The colors are a bold combination. In my garden, the flower form consistently has one petal that points somewhat upward instead of lying flat like the other two petals. I am not sure that I like that, but then again, the uniqueness of the form makes it stand out from the other daylilies around it.
Edited to add that later blooms seem to be flattening out better and self color has lost some of it's yellow undertones.
