I was told that Daylily's do best in full sun, but also bloom well in shade. Is this true? If so what is the minimum amount of sun that they will grow in? What about , Baby blues brunnera, White coneflower, Patty's plum poppy, and lastly a Sorbet peony? Is it the same for some or all of them? Thank you.

Daylilies will bloom best in full sun but will also bloom with only an hour or two of direct sunshine. The other plants you mention will not bloom without 8 hours of sunshine and if you plant them in a shady area they will develop powdery mildew and other fungal diseases. Hope this clarifies things for you.
