Hemerocallis Big Smile?

So far haven’t tracked down what this is – I think that I transplanted it from somewhere else and didn’t record it, I have no matching labels or purchase receipts. This does not resemble either of the two lilies which I have not found.

About 36"h, flowering early July 2010, large, rich lemon-yellow flowers, narrow petals, slight ruffle to edges.
Planted north of Berberis, which shows it off rather nicely.

I am going to enter this as Big Smile? as that is the other hemerocallis that was planted in East 2 and moved. Bought from Van der Meer’s in 05. Grows to 23" (this is a bit taller). “Abundant huge yellow flowers with a blush-pink ruffle”, it has a small ruffle but self-coloured and is has rather longer narrower looking petals than the label picture however…
Blooms late summer, sun or part shade, adapts to dry or moist conditions, Z 3-9

This planting is in the 8. Road garden .
