|I have always liked CAMEROONS TWISTER, and have had it for many many years. It needs a better spot now....the tree by it gives it too much shade, but in its prime, CT would put on quite a show, tall and lots of buds. It has been planted next to PRIMAL SCREAM all these years, which made a lovely contrast.|
I have one seedling from CT:

|This is one of my favorite daylilies, cuz I like 'em tall! It's always a standout in the garden and a strong bloomer.|
No problems with hardiness here in zone 5 and multiplies better than most for my area.
This photo is from July 15th of last year, approaching peak bloom.

|I purchased Cameroons Twister at the Wisconsin Daylily Society sale August 18, 2013. The first year it struggled to bloom. Last year it did better but was blotchy. This year I'm hoping for great things! I like it and am expecting it to prove itself.|

|This one grew here since the early 2000's when John Benz sent it as a bonus plant. It made a nice clump and I loved the color and form. Last year, we finally parted ways when I eliminated the entire bed that grew in. |
Here are a few pictures from when it grew here:
