Contemplation Of Chaos is a nice plant, showing medium green foliage and a large plant that is attractive in the landscape. It is also a fast increaser that clumps up quickly and makes a lot of fans that don't quickly crowd out in the middle allowing it to be either frequently divided for increase or left alone to form a big, glorious clump that gives good performance for a long period of time. The scapes are a good height, though I would like to see more branching, but with a plant with this level of resistance and the very clear purple flower, some things can be forgiven. However, I would note that I have gotten many seedlings from it that show better branching, so you can make good use of it in breeding to improve rust resistance and maintain good branching in a line. As with branching, bud count could be higher, but the same reasoning to look over that point applies. It is too important for the rare and desirable traits is has to dismiss for one or two traits not being the maximum we look for in our modern daylilies. The thrip resistance is moderate.
