The Solitary Double Daylily

This is the only daylily blooming in my yard right now: Hemerocallis "Double River Wye". It is mid-season blooming, semi-double, with lemon yellow flowers.
Being double-flowered, it doesn't look as neat and tidy as those other daylilies that I see all over garden blogs this time of year. It looks more like the daylily that was out frolicking all night with its questionable friends, mindless of its smudged makeup and crazy hair.

Have you seen double-flowered H. fulva? It's so ugly, that it's almost pretty.

D-f daylilies are just coming in Finland - only few cultivars can be found in nurseries.
