I got this fall of 2016. I forget how many fans, but it is a nice clump now. Bloomed nicely with beautiful little flowers. I don't really care for small flowers, but love this one. It also rebloomed pretty well.

This is a nice little plant. Blooms above the foliage and is fertile both ways. The lavender petals in my garden tend to be more muddy looking, but it is a great pattern. Increases at a good rate. Anyway, I am a sucker for puns and any other way to play on words.

I only had George Jets On for about 4 years and then gave it away last year. It was a cute little bloom and was well above the foliage, but as David said, it just had a muddy color for me, so in my process to downsize, it went. It did have that nice pattern and bi-color going for it though. It multiplied well and had good branching, too.

I purchased George Jets On late last summer. It was planted at the beginning of September and it grew very well before winter set in. We had a nice warm autumn, but then we had a bitterly cold December without any snow on the ground. I hope my September planted daylilies survived the winter. I will update this once the new growing season starts.

Goerge Jets On came through our brutal winter and cold spring wonderfully. It looks beautiful this spring, when many other daylilies are struggling with the unseasonably cool weather we are having this spring. It has also shown a very good increase and is a nice clump.
