As a comment about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Pitter Patter'), Tree_climber wrote:

This plant is not very hardy in my zone 5 garden. It has little increase and few blooms most years. I've shared a couple fans with a grower further south and she had the same experience.

It seems to like the new location I moved it to better, so I would recommend a southern exposure with full sun and amending the soil.

Update for 2015:

You'll have to be very patient with "Pitter Patter" ..... It can take several years to settle in and multiply. Plant it in a prime location and just leave it be ... it's a mistake to think maybe it would do better in a different location, it does not like to be moved. (I still recommend full sun)

Once it's a decent size clump, it does have a nice well branched scape and the blooms are high above the foliage. Very pod fertile, but I haven't seen any "spots" on the kids, so I have given up. The amount of spots is variable, but it is cute and very unique.

I see it has one "kid" .... and it's 48", no spots, but it would be interesting to cross it back with "Pitter Patter". hmmmmmmm ......

Does it always have the dotting and speckling?

Yes, it does but the amount of spotting can be variable.

The "spots" seem to be from an absence of pigment ..... not from a different pigment. In other words, not dots of a different color, but areas where the color is faded or absent.
