Congratulations, Theresa , on your win. I am not a big fan of doubles, but one of the stars of our garden is Jean Swann, and yes, it is a Joiner. This year, it has been so wonderful. Of course, we had lots of rain in the spring and that always helps. The pictures I am posting is of four plants-- three of them were probably planted eight to ten years ago so they have had all those years to multiply. The fourth plant was a proliferation and it is remarkable because we have never had another proliferation from these plants. I do not recall seeing any single blooms, only doubles. There is rust in our garden and I don't see any rust on them either.
Jean Swann--to my eyes, a very beautiful flower
This clump shot was taken last week about 7:15 p.m. or a little later. The sun is shining directly on the flowers and they look just about the same as they did in the morning.
This picture taken in the morning a few days ago around 8:00 a.m.. You can see they have opened very well with lots of flowers.
I think this is the one that shows 43 flowers, but I haven't done a real good count. Anyway, you get the idea I am a big cheerleader for this daylily. Naturally, there are so many variables with growing daylilies, and just because it does well for us doesn't mean it would work in your garden, but I think this one is worth taking a chance on, if you like the color and the form.
