I have long loved this cultivar, produced by the grand tooth maker himself, John Rice. Seeing it in a clump is breathtaking! I have had it planted along the sidewalk for many years, and it stops folks in their tracks! Was a great song and album cover by the Jefferson Airplane, too...but that might be showing my

Great plant!

Blooms are beautiful but it never doubles for me despite being registered that way.
I have a few seedlings from it I hope to see bloom this year.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

This one is still getting established in my garden this year it should show off. I have some other Rice daylilies in my garden and they do well here in my northern area.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

I agree it's beautiful! Another one to add to the want book, 3 pages is more than a list. Whistling

Steve, It could just be telling people that you have good taste in music. We don't need to think about age, unless it's our seedlings. Hilarious!

This is one of my favorites, performs very well in California, although not doubling. Usually starts early June, sometimes reblooms.
John Rice himself gifted me one fan, when we visited his greenhouse. The poor plant was housed in a pot for ten years, it finally got planted in the ground , so I am expecting even better performance this year.
