Large, Bitone, Patterened, UF?

I am not into the patterned thing YET.... This Paul Aucoin daylily could change that.  Was I ever surprised this morning when I went out to the greenhouse and saw it. Brooke won this from Paul's last year when our club visited his garden. It measures 6 1/2 inches so it is large, sepals are lighter than the petals, so it is a bitone, and the widest part of the petal is at least half way, UF ???? Paul gave this seedling a name of WHICH WAY OUT and registered it in 2007. Although registered as a five inch, it's first bloom here this morning was as mentioned earlier a full 6 1/2 inches.

The Eye is definately patterned.
