I've had this daylily for about 5 years now. I originally had it planted in my zone 5a garden in Utah, and I wasn't all that happy with it. Part of the problem could have been that it was in partial shade, but the scape always flopped over. I did like the bloom, though, so I brought it with me when I moved to zone 7a, and it is now in full sun, with no shade at all.

I have been amazed at the difference since it was moved! The scapes are now double the thickness that they were before, and they stand straight up without ever flopping over. The wind never really stops blowing here, and I've been impressed at how well the scapes have stood up to the wind!

Apparently, the partial shade just wasn't working for this daylily, and I'm very glad now that I brought it with me when I moved. I was willing to give it one more year, and now it is a keeper.
