In the introduction year, A.B. Stout described it as:
" The scapes of well-grown plants of the Cathay Daylily grow to a height of 38 inches and they are erect, well-branched, and rather slender. The leaves are narrow and the foliage evergreen but rather wiry and reasonably hardy. The climax of flowering at New York comes in mid-July. The dominant colors of the flowers are a golden orange in the throat and scarlet red on the blades. At the base of the blade-coloring next to the throat the shade of red is darker and approaches carmine, but this is blended and does not form a sharp mid-zone as in the blooms of Fiftieth Anniversary (described in the Journal for April 1946).
