A lot of people like this one; it has soft, yet striking colors. However, the scapes lean, and for that reason, most of it left long ago.

I haven't been aware of it's leaning scapes. The plant perforns well here. Has a reasonable bloom size, 6" at least. Size insrease is ok; customers like it so it has never reached a large clump. I'm happy with mine.

My daughter accompanied me to a local daylily farm during a 'clump sale'. She asked if I would go together with her on several clumps, one of which was Femme De Joie. It was blooming at the time and it was dug at the daylily farm, then we divided it in two. It never missed a beat and just kept on blooming with lovely, large blooms. I do not remember the scapes leaning, it seemed fine here in that respect.

Does well here. One of the first daylilies I bought when we moved here. It is a large clump now. Always a reliable bloomer. Valerie we probably bought it at the same place.
