I bought 8 fans and planted them on 4/17/2015.
Because my borders were already filling up with annuals, I put them in a big pot.

The fans increased from April until now from 8 to 18(!).
It produced 11 scapes and started blooming on 7/17/2015, last flower on 8/10/2015, with a total of 51 flowers. :-)
I took away all spent flowers, so I don't know anything about its fertility yet.
It is making 2 prolifs, though :-)

I haven't measured the flowers... sorry Sad I promise to do better next year!
Flowers were well placed and didn't cramp each other.
The scapes ranged from 19 to 22 inches high. Scapes were sturdy and most were well above the foliage
Leaves and fans are narrow, but there are a lot of them.

This afternoon I took it out of the pot to put it in a border (annuals are gone :-D) and I found that in 4+ months it made a lot of roots.
Perhaps this is the reason the scapes didn't get as high as they should?

All in all, this is a spider that I really love and I'm sure it will only get better now that it is in the ground :-D

On, it says that this cultivar will also set pods on a tet.

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Red Volunteer'), blue23rose wrote:

Even though I started with a double fan of Red Volunteer in 2008, I have given a lot of it away over the years and still have a good sized clump. While it is considered red, some blooms appear to be a very dark raspberry red. On very hot days, it does not look as vibrant, but it still retains a lot of color.

Red Volunteer is listed as a midseason bloomer. I live in zone 6b and my records show that in 2009, it bloomed from 6/29/09 to 8/5/09 and then had rebloom from 9/14/09 to at least 10/11/09. In 2010, it bloomed from 6/17/10 to 7/17/10, but no rebloom. This year, it only bloomed from 6/22/15 to 7/17/15 and I attribute that to the fact that there has been a lot of shrub growth in that area.

Rust resistance is great. The foliage always looks nice on it.

There shouldn't be any secret that this is one of my favorite reds. It performed nearly perfectly for me. This is only its second year in my garden, and its performance has me drooling already for next year's blooms. The scapes were 23+" and were very strong and standing tall. It was very hard not to notice this CV from across the lawn. I have used it in several crosses this year and it seems to be both pollen and pod fertile. It also looks as though it will be a fast multiplier as the fans have doubled from the original three planted...

Talking about Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Lavender White Eyes'), Mayo62 wrote:

Nine (smallish single) fans were bought in April this year and were planted in a full-sun border.
They made a total of 11 scapes and 49 flowers (would have been more flowers, but my dog knocked off several buds Sad )

Increased from 9 to 16 fans this summer and is growing 1 rebloom scape at this moment.
First 3 flowers didn't open completely, but at that time temps were in the lower 60s F.
Flowers are a very nice color and are fragrant!

Only 1 minus point: All scapes were shorter than the foliage... :-(
I hope that was because they are young plants, not settled yet, and they will be better next year.

Overall, a very nice cultivar for the front of the border, and for me, a keeper! :-)
