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.
