Click the play button to hear "Rumi Blues," whose refrain, "For the Love of God," is the inspiration for this daylily's name and the reason for hybridizing daylilies in the first place. I love this song; another of my introductions is named for it. Rumi Blues is composed by Allaudin Mathieu, and sung by the late Bob Maize, may God bless him, with the Sufi Choir. My husband, Huzur, was playing clarinet. It's available through http://coldmountainmusic.com, The Sufi Choir ("The Blue Album," 1973) (played here with permission). Photos are mine.
