In the introduction year, A.B. Stout described it as:
" The color pattern in the flowers of this daylily is boldly banded with a broad mid-zone in the petals of garnet-brown which is in sharp contrast to the clear cadmium-yellow (which is a shade of orange) of both the throat and the outer part of the open flower. Also the color of the throat extends or radiates rather prominently along the midvein of each petal. There is only slight banded coloring in the sepals. The flowers are clustered in a manner that brings the flowers of the different scapes into a somewhat compact group at nearly the same level. The scapes reach a height of 30 inches. In winter the foliage is fully dormant. The plants flower chiefly in late June. The flower coloring resembles that of the Mikado Daylily but the season of flowering is earlier and the habit of growth is different. In the ancestral pedigree of this plant there are H. flava, H. fulva clone Europa, H. aurantiaca, and H. Middendorffii. "
