    I grew LB before during, approx. 1999-2002 and emailed Clayton Burkey (the hybridizer) regarding it. I can't remember his exact words, but he said to make sure it was growing in full sun only and not to divide LB until it was a clump. I gave all the fans I had to a fellow daylily friend, but have decided I want to grow it again. It's such a beautiful daylily!
