In bloom now (June 10, '18) since mid May in south Louisiana. I believe its breeder, Durio, is a south LA native in a town nearby. 'Joan Senior' is plain but elegant, standing tall and being the palest yellow that looks white from 5' away. My flowers are 5", and not 6" as recorded. Maybe they'll be larger as it gets more established this year. I've only had it since last fall, so I'm excited to see its reblooming schedule. It's similar to the 'Ice Carnival' I have, too, but 'Joan' is not as tall.

Bloomed at my house, much weaker than Alexa's. I should probably have watered more.
