I have this one in a dry shady area under large trees, and it blooms well, the flowers are huge and bright, with thick substance. Blooms for a long time. Really nice.

This daylily doesn't seem to care where it's planted. I have some in full sun and some in almost total (but high) shade. It's one of the first to start blooming, and it puts on a show for weeks. Highly recommended.
