Two interesting plants from the 1984 Korean daylily collection trip

We've absorbed a lot of these plants into the Asian Collections. Mostly we've spotted them about (tastefully!); they're colorful accents at this period when most of the floral display is over. These two are interesting in their own right. The top plant is semi-double with wonderful coloring. It has a "star" in the floral tube, yellow surrounded by a darker orange than the petals themselves. H. lilioasphodelus has interesting strappy petals that I find more appealing than those typical of the species.
