|I've had Daring Deception for many years and even brought a clump with me when we moved. I have it planted in front of my Annabelle Hydrangea and beside Gordon Biggs and love the color contrast. I haven't had rebloom at this house but I'm keeping track of it. |
It really is in this picture tucked behind Gordon Biggs.

|I have owned Daring Deception for a couple of years now and have been quite happy with its performance in my 5b garden. |
It has increased quite nicely and bloomed for several weeks this summer.
I have been much happier with this flower than its sister plant Daring Dilemma.

|Very vigorous. Grows like a weed--a nice weed. Rebloomed here. Of course, the color is not so exciting as when it was introduced.|

Daring Deception has been in my garden since '04. It grows well and has been moved/divided several times in the last 12 years. It reaches the 24" as registered here. The bud count is not high but the blooms are nice, always consistent in color and form, always open well. I don't know about pods and pollen. It does not rebloom for me.

|I had this one as well as Daring Dilemma for several years. Daring Deception always did so much better & I really liked it. Daring Dilemma died one year during a drought, & lost Daring Deception last year from voles. Started to pick up a replacement for Daring Deception this year but passed it up. I later regretted my decision & they didn't have any more. It did rebloom a couple of years, & set pods easily. Increased nicely.|

|I have had Daring Deception for several years and it is a good performer in my northern garden. It does well even with dappled shade from nearby pine trees. I set pods on it this year without problem. All in all, a good garden performer for me.|

|Daring Deception was bought after I read an article about "daylily 500". It took a couple tries to get the correct plant which eventually I got from Gilbert Wild. The other source sent me an unknown plants which I still have. They both do well despite being planted on the north side of an old well. Daring Deception has rebloomed a few times. |

|I've had Daring Deception for about 7 years. Always has been a consistent bloomer and increased well. Flowers well above the foliage and it bloomed for an extensive period of time - long enough that I never looked to see if it was reblooming, it was just always there from sometime in April until late June. My sister-in-law came and helped me with feeding horses and such when my husband was in the hospital and she fell in love with the daylilies. I offered her a couple of them to take home to their tiny, little condo garden. She chose Midnight Magic and Daring Deception. Both had multiplied well, so she got a healthy chunk to take back to Orlando. Both have done well there too. It is kind of a peachy pink in my garden.|

|I've had Daring Deception for 4 years, It's a big clump and is always full of blooms for months. Due to our late to get going warm temps, it takes a few weeks of blooming for the blooms to fully open. Not the plants fault, it's our weather. I loved it at first , but my tastes change every 3 minutes so I am going to remove it. Not because of any fault with it, I just don't like it much anymore. It is pink here with a maroon eye. It does not rebloom here. |
