Hardy in Maine, blooms in partial shade and seems to be a good increaser. I like the delicateness of the blooms.

I wanted a dwarf daylily, something I could put in a gap in the foreground of my front flowerbed, and this seemed to fit the bill. I had more in the package than I could use in the front, so I planted this one in my back yard. It did much better in the eastern exposure of the back than in the western exposure of the front. Winnipeg is a Zone 3a, sometimes a 2b. I only got three blooms on this one, and single blooms on the ones in the front yard, and only after two seasons.

It's me Beckykay and I do like this plant very much. I have had this plant about 3 years and I divided it and both plants are doing good. I like the height on this and have it planted in front of a larger lily. Thx.
