|I love Chicken on the Run! I got it from Dan himself at his home in Lebanon, OH in 2002 when he introduced it. Great grower!
Beautiful flowers every time, every year. Dan uses this one a lot in his hybridizing and is sold out of it most of the time.
One of my favorites of his.

|Very distinctive rich colored blooms. Does extremely well here in Northern KY. Relatively fast increaser with nice tall scapes that are well branched. Looking forward to seedlings from COTR that I started.
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

|I love the color of COTR. Another tall big bloomer with many blooms over a long time period. Great performer here in my small Northern Ky garden.|
