This daylily is soooooooo good and is another of my favorites. The blooms are HUGE and yet always open perfectly due to spectacular scapes with wide spaced branching. It sets seed like crazy, even on hot days in full sun. It seems to stay in bloom forever, reliably giving a show day after day for weeks on end like so many other of Judy's wonderful creations. I have a weakness for striking watermarks and this is one of the best. Perfectly hardy and multiplies steadily in my zone 6a garden. Pictures do not do this one justice. This is one of my "I am so glad I bought this" daylilies!

One of the finest daylilies I grow! It is dramatic, huge and spectacular. Is a huge pod maker here, especially as the season progresses. My most kept pod parent in all my keeper seeds. Will see a bunch of kids next season.

Davi knocked it outta the park with Confessions.

This was new from Judy last spring - bloomed well but scapes hadn't reached their mature height yet. Can't wait to see it blooming this season, know it will do as beautifully as all of Davi's do here. Because scapes were short, images ( regrettably) tags are showing in some pictures. Will do better this year!
