This is supposed to be a truly tall daylily, with yellow flowers June-August. It will be a few years before we see it in all its glory. For us it started blooming in its third year after growing from seed, with fairly traditional-looking, longish yellow daylily flowers. They've not really grown tall yet (three to four foot high so far), but that may be due to growing conditions: we planted ours at the back of our filtration bog, in mostly dry, unenriched clay soil.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
