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 clones 'Jennie Love' and 'Charmaine Queen' are selections of numerous seedlings of several generations derived from wild plants of Hemerocallis fulva var. rosea of which the 'Rosalind' clone is the type plant. A seedling of one of the early generations was named 'Charmaine' in 1934.
The 'Charmaine Queen' daylily has long petals and sepals that give a spread of as much as six inches. The ground color of the petals is coral-pink with a bright red mid-zone and veins. The sepals are more uniformely coral-pink, for the veins are not as conspicuous as is the general rule. The scapes have been as much as forty-five inches in height. The flowering period of these two clones has been in July. "
