Background history:

'Davi's Dilemma' is a dormant tetraploid introduced in 2011 by Judy Davisson. Judy is also known as "Davi" here on ATP! Check out her website for more of her beautiful daylily creations: http://www.picturetrail.com/davijk

A wonderful interview with Judy can be found here: http://hemaholicsanonymous.blogspot.com/2011/02/meet-judy-da... as well as this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly5jfW1WhKo

Juli started a thread about Judy Davisson: The thread "ATP Series: The Daylilies of Judy Davisson" in Daylilies forum

Davi's Dilemma is a mid-season bloomer with possible re-bloom. Pollen Fertile. Fertility notes: Difficult, but not impossible as a pod parent, but pollen is easy. It currently has 1 registered child: http://garden.org/plants/parentage/184410/

This plant can be found in the NGA Plant Database at:

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more! I award an acorn for performance information posted to this thread.

One of the greats! Amazing branching and bud count and a wonderful soft watermark (and you know what I think about watermarks!). No dilemma from my perspective....bought it as soon as I saw it...lol.

Steve is right on with this one! I also love watermarks and this is one of the best. Huge 10" blooms on graceful, sturdy scapes with great branching. Perfect crystal clear color that can be seen across the garden. The photos above are wonderful but this one somehow manages to be even prettier in person!

I wouldn't have recognized the photos as being the same bloom. Which is closer to correct? Or does the color actually vary that much in different growing conditions? It's true both photos are very attractive.

I think the difference between the photos is merely lighting. The first photo looks like it was in full sun with sun shining on the bloom whereas the second photo was taken in the shade or on an overcast day. Both look accurate depending on when you happen to view to flower Smiling

Be nice if that were in the database! It matches what my mind conjures up with the official description of 'rose pink' really well. The photos in the post are the only ones in the db. I'm not very subtle about hinting, am I? I think I don't know how to do that. Smiling

Agreed, you should put that nice clump shot in the database Steve! I've only added one myself but it's pretty easy. I had a few pics added to the DB for me when I first got started on ATP. You just fill in basic info and the website software adds a lot of the info that you see when you view the DB pages.

as with all but 4 which I got last year this is one of my new ones that I got so we will have to wait to see it bloom in clump form, and I can't wait
