Mine is SIROCCO. It was growing here six years ago when we bought the house. It grows against a west wall, along which I could plant several other daylilies.

Any suggestions?

I’d rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.

I was amazed this year at the striking blooms of a clump of Imperial Treasure planted right against a tree. It actually benefits from some shade, as the hot sun takes its toll.

If you do not have about a half days sun I would find something else to plant there.

'Insider Trading' did very well this year (now that the deer aren't around to eat it). It didn't rebloom, but I made several crosses on it and it is loaded with pods. (I didn't dare re-fertilize it, given the rot problems I am having this year with some of the seedlings.)

'Black Falcon Ritual' (or possibly a seedling thereof) also did very well (it is shaded by a deciduous oak and redbud), but it might be too tall to grow up against a house wall.

Both of these, per my record keeping methodology (I record if a daylily was in bloom by quarter months) were in bloom for a little over a month.

'Pacific Shamrock' was nice in filtered shade in my brick patio nursery/potting area... but it had a LOT of shade, way less than half a day's worth of sun, so I only had about 3 weeks of bloom from it.

Much of my garden gets a lot of shade, so if I want more than a few daylilies, I have no choice but to grow many in part shade. I take whatever blooms I can get, but some cultivars do perform better than others in those conditions, and the more shade, the less bloom you get, and you should be grateful for any rebloom.
Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

Kansas Kitten has always been grown in the shadiest part of the yard with good blooms. Leebea Orange Crush, Final Touch, Night Embers, Moses Fire, So Lovely, Little Wart, Joan Senior, Flutterbye are in pretty shady areas. My shade mainly comes from deciduous trees. I try to plant early bloomers around trees. Trees leaf out and daylilies are getting ready to bloom. Late bloomers are the quandary. They need shade to be able to withstand the heat, but their blooms theoretically get the least amount of sun. I try to avoid late bloomers. May serenity fill your lives!

Under the thread Best clump performers you can see my Chicago Apache. Also did very well this year and last are Court Magician and Razzmatazz. All get morning sun then shade rest of the day.
