You'd never think this short, fine, grasslike foliage is a daylily, but when the small 3" ruffly apricot flowers start opening in April, it's the cutest little plant. As a rebloomer here in zone 9, it should keep sending out flowers off and on until frost arrives. It's now established after winter and bloomed in my yard for the 1st time, so we'll see if it continues through the year.
