We did not plant this one (birds?) and it took over a corner that gets fairly hot sun in the mornings. It does 'melt' in the heat of the summer but comes back as sure as the winds. This is highly invasive, but it is a delightful filler. I pull corms out freely and don't fear for it's demise. The plant is known for tolerating more heat than it's siblings.
