This hasn't been an attractive garden daylily in my St. Louis area gardens. It's too low, the branching is too compressed, and the flowers often collide. Blossom form varies from day to day. Hybridizing with it as a pollen parent is another story. I consider this a hybridizer plant to be grown somewhere other than a beauty garden.

Maryott's said they have reports from MI that this cultivars thrives fine in the cold.
