    A bold bright color and have moved it next to a purple for next years bloom. Bought it at the festival and am glad to have it.

    This is such an unusual double. Instead of a ruffled center, it looks like a 2nd blossom was placed inside the 1st! And the double form is exceptionally consistent. In fact, I’ve never had it produce anything but double blooms here in the Rocky Mountains of Utah. I give him a 4, only because I’ve struggled a bit finding the right spot for him to produce more of his unique blossoms.

    This daylily sent upMORE scapes in October and was still blooming when snow hit Ohio in mid November. The blooms are great, scalloped edges, beautiful yellow. A real trooper, at least in Ohio!

    Prester John was a free plant with a daylily order & would not have been one I’d have ordered, BUT! It’s not only sturdy & pretty, it’s also gifting me with Rebloom this year! The first of what looks like seven buds is open today, September 1st, 2011!

    I received this plant for free at the festival last year. I was a little disappointed when I got it, but am thrilled now! This lilly produces many blooms and they are simply delightful. The yellow of my plant is much more bold than the picture. Very nice!

    I am so thrilled, my Prester John is reblooming today {7/11} and beautiful. I purchased it in 2006 and it has doubled in size. Oakes is the best daylily farm, terrific quanity and quality. I tell all my friends to check out Oakes!!!

    A bit more orange than I expected from the website picture. But I love the hose-in-hose double shape. Very charming — especially if you like the “hot” colors.

    This daylily was sent to me as a bonus plant and has never failed me. The blooms are vivid yellow-orange and the color holds up well in the hot afternoon sun. I am curruently waiting for 2 more blooms to open. All daylilies are beautiful, but the ones with double blooms are expecially beautiful. This daylily will always have a place my garden.
