I've had this semi-evergreen for several years and it is moderately happy for me in my front garden. It gets afternoon sun and is in very well-drained soil because a nearby pine tree has roots everywhere. The last two winters have been mild which has been very good for this plant. However, in years with late, hard frosts the foliage is often damaged and blooming can be greatly reduced. I believe it would perform much better in a warmer climate but overall it has done pretty well for a non-dormant daylily in my garden.
