In the introduction year, A.B. Stout described it as:
" The flowers are of medium size and full with all petals and sepals gracefully recurved. The throat of the flower is pale orange outside of which the coloring is near grenadine pink (Ridgeway) or salmon red (between numbers 13-2 and 13-3 of the R.H.S. charts) but with darker red coloring in the veins. The scapes are well branched but only about 30 inches tall. In well grown plants the flowers are numerous and somewhat massed at a low level in a way that attracts attention. The period of flowering is in July. The propagations of this plant under selection at the nurseries of the Farr company have been much admired by members of that firm and by various visitors. This seedling is one of numerous individuals obtained by cross-breeding the Patricia with the Charmaine Daylily. "
