Photos Of Both On This Page.


Diamond-Dusting. 
 See photo below of a  seedling which *is* diamond-dusted (heavily so).   Old photos and resolution is low (better photos of diamond-dusting coming late 2017).




Diamond-Dusting Concentrated *Mostly On Midrib* Can Be Seen Below. Click On Small Pic.

Red Daylilies Which Are Diamond-Dusted Are My Favourites.

I don't specialize in breeding for diamond-dusted daylilies, so I can't offer any clues as to what cultivars would be useful in breeding for the trait.
