Last week I just received a wonderful plant of RIBBONETTE from Bob Selman at Blue Ridge Daylilies and can't wait until it blooms. I just know I'm going to love it!

I found the descriptions of this plant rather puzzling, can someone explain what is meant by this:
"Color description: RL2: Red light with markting, bitone, or polychrome"

This also puzzled me. Is it a bitone or a reverse bitone? Is it sometime one and other times the other?
"Bloom Traits: Bitone or Reverse Bitone"
