I received a single fan of Future Whisper in September 2016. It bloomed last year and has just recently started blooming this year. Most daylilies don't reach their hybridizers stats here in my yard because of less than ideal growing conditions. But this one has done better than many others. Maybe it's location in a raised bed is a factor.

Here are the stats this year:

And a recent bloom photo:

This cultivar produces a large, striking bloom that I have used successfully for hybridizing. I haven't had any seedlings, from this as a parent, bloom yet. But I am hoping for many of it's traits to be passed on to it's children. One of those traits is it appears to be rust resistant.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
