It is dormant here in zone 6b and is good garden daylily. It increases quickly and is really pretty in a clump.

The first Westbourne daylily I purchased on the Lily Auction--fortunately, nobody bid against me so I got it and I have never been disappointed. Unfortunately a few years ago just as it was clumping up beautifully, the moles got under it and before we realized what was happening, our plant was killed. There is some good news, WB Good Old Days produced a proliferation, and we had taken it off and rooted it, so we still have the plant. It is three years old now, and we just moved it to a better spot last fall. Now it has produced three scapes and soon we hope to have pictures which will certainly be posted here.

Got it a cpl years ago 2015 ? Had it planted up front in a.good spot.but it started to get swallowed up by Shasta Daisy ( becky ) moved it to the side. What I do know is that it does not like the hot afternoon sun on really humid days can fade bad.

Very showy bicolor. I also have found that it does not like hot afternoon sun. Good grower.

This one is a vigorous grower and a bountiful bloomer here. I've never noticed the problem with fading in the late afternoon because mine is in the shade from about 3 o'clock on. And pretty much everything here fades a bit when we get into the high 90s.

I'm adding this to say it acts like a dormant here in Nashville.
