I have it in full sun (southeast Michigan) and it does not fade; the rain does not turn it blotchy either.

Positive ms_greenjeans On Oct 27, 2010, ms_greenjeans from Hopkins, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

This is a really striking daylily -- the color is absolutely gorgeous. The scapes are really thick and sturdy, the leaves are wide, and it produces a lot of large blooms. This a big daylily variety and seems to be vigorous. I divide it every two years. It does have a mild fragrance, which only adds to its appeal.

this daylily consistently has strong blooms for me . it's one of my fav darker ones. i agree that it blooms best when it gets protection from
the harsh afternoon sun here also.

The best deep purple I have come across so far that likes the cold. Wish it would bloom all summer.

It is a very pretty flower in part shade but here in full sun it seems to sunburn a lot. Multiplys freely.

This plant gets just a little morning sun between the shade of a wall and the outer limbs of an oak tree. But it blooms in beauty every year.
