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.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
