|What are your favorite diamond dusted lilies?|

|I know noone has answered, but almost all of my daylilies are diamond dusted. It would be hard to pick one, and it isnt a characteristic that stands out without the sun . I know Guy Pierce is big on saying his daylilies are diamond dusted, and that they are.

Daylilies & hardy hibiscus

|Whistler's Lane and Apricot Sparkles are both heavily dusted, although perhaps it's "gold dusting" rather than diamond dusting because the flowers are yellow and peach.
I've noticed diamond/gold dusting on many cultivars with descriptions that don't include it, but not to the pronounced degree of these two cultivars.
Hardy hibiscus are a hobby, but daylilies are an obsession.

|Diamond dusting was pretty uncommon until the 1980's. It was the recently late Jeff Salter, and some other breeders such as Dan Trimmer and Pat Stamile that started to produce a lot of cv.'s that were dusted. Yes, sunlight is needed to fully appreciate that quality, especially early morning light.|
