|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 age....lol.|

|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!

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

|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.
