In the introduction year, A.B. Stout described it as:
" All of these clones have foliage that is dormant or semi-dormant, and all have proved fully hardy.
The three remaining clones of the present list flowered as young seedlings at The New York Botanical Garden, and hence their selection has been made by H. G. Seyler of the Farr Nursery Company. They have been judged to have special merit as late-blooming clones.
The 'Chancellor' daylily has flowered until mid-September. The scapes are about five feet tall and much branched. The flowers (figure 9) are wide-spreading to as much as five inches. The conspicuous throat of the flower is golden, outside of which the prevailing color is a dark shade of red that is strongest in the mid-zone, and there is a mid-strip in each petal. Mr. Seyler's notes state that the color is a "rosy red that is slightly lighter than the color in 'Rose Gem'." "
