The flowers are stunning and the foliage is a nice bluish clump. The only negative is that it was slower to establish than most (didn't bloom first year) but I have it in dappled shade.

The only downside I have with this daylily is that it is not as fast a multiplier that I would like! But other than that, it does great in my zone and tolerates the flooding here so I cant ask for much more. It does well in shade to sun for me. My soil is poor.
