Hi Jon,
All I can say is, "This is one fantastic daylily"! It takes a lot for a plant to impress me; and this one is a winner in every way:

1. Good looking landscape plant.
2. Easily grown & cared for.
3. Withstands tough winter extremes here. (5a/b)
4. Rapid growth and increases.
5. Individual blooms are very colorful and appealing in a subtle way.

Sorry I am late to the party, but I just got in from a sweaty, hot, high humidity day. You Texans would certainly know about that. Smiling

I was given Janice Brown from a friend and was not sure if I was going to keep it. I have had this in a pot for the last 2 seasons, so I cannot comment too much about its habits. I am looking forward to getting it in the ground this fall and see what it really can do once in the ground Smiling It has such a nice color that I have not seen in many daylilies. The flowers have great form too and it never has a bad hair day for me.

I just love Janice Brown. I have both dip and tet versions. This is an all around great plant. Behaves as a true dormant in my Zone 7b (borderline 8) garden. Beautiful blue-green foliage in Spring, long blooming season, a consistent rebloomer, and fertile. Blooms open well and have perfect form almost every time. Tet. JB sometimes has poly blooms, and double/poly when temps are very hot. The color is beautiful, clean, and clear. The edge has such a nice ruffle to it. I just can't say enough good things about this DL!

Janice Brown is in one of the best places in my garden for growing daylilies - full sun and black dirt which I had imported, because otherwise it is all clay. it blooms about 6 to 7 weeks maybe longer and increases good too.

Janice Brown has performed really great. Increases nicely and has a nice bud count. I am going to create a way to keep with the Daylily stats we look at.

I ordered this plant from Wild's and planted it on March 23, 2015. It has done well so far. It bloomed for me early in June. Being so new it did not have many blooms but I was pleased with the plant and the blooms. It did have a different appearance to the blooms over time.

I originally received a plant that I thought would be " When My Sweetheart Returns". Once it bloomed, I figured out that she was actually Janice Brown. Well, that's ok! She turned out to be a great plant too. She has survived many years and a few transplants but is still reliably blooming.

The plant seemed to grown weaker after just a couple of years, and hardly bloomed for the past two years, it is probably on its way out this year.
