It's a slow opener here in zone 6 New York too, but it bloomed well the following spring after being received bare root in late August. For hybridizing purposes, it's style sticks out long before the bloom opens so can be easily pollinated, but it has to be pried open if you want to collect its pollen early.

I have had my Calgary Stampede for three summers. It didn't bloom the first year, it did bloom the second but was unimpressive. I moved, and finally got it planted earlier this year. It bloomed beautifully for the first time, which told me two things. It wants good dirt, and it needs time to establish. It was well established in its pot when I planted it, and I was careful to not disturb the roots. Some daylilies thrive on being moved, some need time to settle in. I think CS is in the latter category. The last point you ought to know is that it is not open early in the morning. This can be a problem for hybridizers and people who want to walk their gardens before work. It sure is pretty when it is open!
