One of my favorite daylilies. Although it's not supposed to grow and bloom in zone 4a, mine is planted up against the foundation of the house on the south side of the house and has been doing well for three years now. I don't mulch it in the winter either, it just gets a little snow cover when we have snow. Given the right conditions, I think it will grow in lower zones.
