'California Sunshine' was a bright bloomer for me in Zone 7A as a first year DL. I got it as a left-over from our club sale in April, and it was blooming in June. It's supposed to be a re-bloomer, and it didn't do that for me this year, but it did produce several nice blooms in its maiden year here. She's listed as a semi-evergreen, so I'll be watching her this winter to see how that goes, too!

I don't grow this one, but that brilliant yellow is sure a stand out. Hope more people have grown it and will comment. Otherwise I might just have to add this one to my yellow collection and try it for myself.......Maryl
