When I first spotted this flower from the sides, I had mistaken it for a daylily. Upon closer inspection from above, I noticed that each of the petals was attached to the stamen with its own petiole, or stalk, rather than the petal being attached directly forming the corolla.
Thanks to London Caller, this flower has been identified.
