This is one of my favourites and I've had it for many years. Its foliage is the last to go down in winter here, even -8C (~18F) didn't completely kill the leaves down to the ground the one year I was checking that. All daylilies have their foliage die back in winter here where it gets to -30C (-22F) or colder a few times most winters. I wouldn't say it flowers prolifically but that doesn't bother me. I have pictures but they're on my laptop so I will try and post one later.

It's a"What's not to like" plant. I bought a double fan 2 summers ago. Last week end at my sale sold 3-4 plants and a double fan is left with 2 scapes and 15 -18 buds per scape. It winters well.

Have grown Court Magician for several years with about 20 inch scape height. Has multiplied well for me and in morning sun and afternoon shade. No accurate bud count but it has been very prolific bloomer for me. An old favorite i will always keep.

It appears Court Magician has done a disappearing act. I can't find any record of it in my garden any more, it is going on the used to have had list.

Court Magician has been a great grower for me. This year though, the blooms are late opening due to a much cooler summer. The blooms themselves open up great and it looks like some splattered yellow paint at the top of the eye on each bloom.
The bud count isn't accurate here due to cooler summers.
Right now I only have one bloom left on it, it will be a long wait until next year.
A True gardener will purchase a thousand plants before thinking of where to put them :P
