'Divas in Diamonds' is a dormant tetraploid introduced in 2012 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/da...
A wonderful interview with Judy can be found here: http://hemaholicsanonymous.blo... as well as this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

|This is an extremely hardy and extremely vigorous garden showstopper. My clump has gorgeous foliage and produces tremendous, well-branched scapes with every bloom displayed perfectly. Reliable northern instant rebloom for me and multiplies like the dickens!|
Per my notes, it bloomed last year from July 8 to September 14...almost 10 full weeks!!! How many huge, tall daylilies can you say that about?
It doesn't waft for me, but it has a beautiful fragrance if you stick your nose in the blooms. VERY fertile both ways and reliably produces large pods filled with big, plump seeds even on sunny, 90+ degree days.

|Very well stated Corey, you keep good records. I always intend to, but never get enough time. I so agree about this daylily although I didn't get to monitor mine as closely as you did so am not sure I had the rebloom here in zone 4. Hopefully I can check more closely this season guess I just have too many daylilies to get all the stats. I like huge, tall daylilies and this one fits the bill plus it is a beauty.|
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

|as with all of the Judy Davisson I either planted them last year or I'm gong to plant them this year. this one was planted late summer of last year so I can't add anything to it but if mine gets any where near what Corey's does for bloom length I will be extremely happy. reading these type of descriptions is what got me to asking questions about Judy's cultivars , thanks (Corey - tree_Climber - Floota - Ahead ) and others, is why I'm adding hers to my garden why I still have room.|

|Just wondered if this lily is diamond dusted?|

|It is very heavily diamond dusted over the entire surface of the bloom.|
