It's been raining here for some time and the plant is on a slippery slope, so I was not able to get a close-up shot of the bloom. If the rain continues, I will employ a different lens:)

2020 Notes: Planted 12 months ago. Last year I planted 49 new daylilies. Of the 49, Fire Fountain is one of the most vigorous. I purchased it from directly (mail order) from the breeder, Nate Bremer (Solaris Farms). It was a very large 2 fan root ball. After a year in the ground, it is 54 inches tall, scapes are thick at 1/3 inch diameter and flowers are 9 inches wide. One outstanding specimen.
