I don't grow Diamond Shores, but I could tell that it had Rose F. Kennedy in it. DS has some nice kids too! Would love to here more about this one.

I just received it yesterday, so not much to say except it is a big healthy fan. Sure hope to see some reviews from someone who has had it a while. I

I just acquired mine potted in March. E-M bloom season, no scapes so unlikely to see a bloom this year as we are post-mid season.

I purchased Diamond Shores last spring for our Florida Home along with 6 other varieties. When we returned in the fall it had been overpowered by a Coreopsis and another plant that became huge 8' tall and sent seeds that started plants right near DS. I replanted what was left of it and another that was in that same area. DS has done very well but I didn't see a bloom this spring before we left though most of the others that weren't smothered bloomed. Now that it is away from the bullies I am looking forward to seeing flowers next spring before we head back north. Once they get bigger I am planning on dividing and trying them in NY.
@LindaShields I would be interested in how yours makes it through next winter or if anyone else in zone 5 or 6 grows it. Looks like it might be a little tender since Chris seems to not had any luck over wintering?

Purchased Diamond Shores in 2017 from Pierce, and the plant is a
huge clump now. The plant blooms beautifully each year. Nice foliage
as well.
