Joan Derifield, is a deep saturated red with lighter watermark. It has been my favorite red, since i got it last year. It has not reached registered stats yet for me, but is still rather new, it did have very thick, strong scapes. It has more than doubled in size since being planted in 2014. I would recommend this one, to anybody who likes deep velvety red Daylilies.

One of my favorites in the garden. The 7" bloom is what I always look for in a daylily and just a hint of a white edge with the stunning red really sets it off. Really showy in a clump.

How many blooms? How many branches? Admitting these are somewhat flexible numbers. Neither our database nor AHS's list that information.

planted Joan Derifield was planted in the spring of 2014 and this year it grew to about 28" to 30"high did not have a lot of buds on it this year but the blooms were nice. I took the advice that "mattsmon " gave on giving it afternoon shade and it kept it velvety texture and deep color well into the afternoon. P.S. one of these days I'm going to have to learn how to take pictures and post them thanks for everyone who does

Peggy - Could you give us just a little more information about yours. Is it a clump? How many blooms and scapes? When did they start and stop blooming. And why do you think they did so well this year?

I have been through 2 growing seasons with Joan Derifield and have not had a blossom yet. The first year, I put it down to a young plant. This year, I excused it because I moved it to a less crowded spot. Next year--- it must put forward a bloom or it goes. It is also only one fan more than the two I planted 2 years ago.

OK. This is an update to my review of Joan Deerfield. I have 3 fans still on this plant although the fans are large and healthy. She produced 3 buds and so far one bloom. I would call her a mid bloomer here. This is the picture of the first ever bloom. My experience has been here that second and third blooms are substantially better so I will see when they open. This is one plant I would not be sorry to move out of the garden.
