I've been growing SUW for approx. 8 years. I have it planted in the front of the house so it only gets light from 2pm to sundown. This year I have several reblooms due to warmer than usual tempertures and an abundance of rain this year. Blooms on it as late as Oct.1st here in Maine is not normal, but they are blooming. :)

has been growing in my garden for over 10 years---split into a dozen or so plants and they are growing vigorously---some producing proliferations---wonder if it would be a lighter color in a shadier spot?

I can't understand why this daylily is so popular. In my garden, it is not off-white in full sun, but an unattractive tan. I like Pandora's Box much better. If Siloam Ury Winniford died, I would not replace it, and that is something I can't say about many daylilies.

This variety of Hemerocallis is the prize of my garden! It has beautiful fringe, a delicate cream petal, and maroon/purple throat. A delight to any gardener! I highly reccomend. A picture cannot do it justice (although carolann's picture of this variety is about the best). If you enjoy this variety, you may also enjoy-- Hemerocallis Pandora's Box (i'm in a hurry and not exactly sure the the spelling and punctuation for Pandora's). It has a similar color scheme, but not as "delicate" and petite.
