There you have it, Hemerocallis sp.
Wild-collected in Korea in 1984 with many others. It's one of the hundred plus that used to live alongside the boundary fence in the Boxwood Collection. A few years ago we selected 50 or so and planted them in the Asian Collections. We put three each on the rocks along the road near the weeping katsura. They're easy to see; you can drive right up to them! This yellow flowers on this plant, perched atop 3 1/2 foot scapes, are pleasantly fragrant
