There's a Chirita hybrid called "Diane Marie"; a large seeded watermelon
called "Sweet Diane"; a chrysanthemum called "Diane Stoakes"; a hosta
named "Diana Gray Dalton" & another called "Dianne"; dahlias called
"Monkstown Diane" & "Ruskin Diane"; daylilies called "Daphne Diane" &
"Diane Joiner"; a rhododendron called "Diane" with cream-colored flowers;
a Coleus hybrid called "Diane's Gold"; Irises called "Miss Diane," "Megan
Diane" & "Benton Diane" (or "Diane" in the Benton series of heirloom
irises); a Clivia hybrid called "Diane"; a lilac bush called "Diane"; an
heirloom rose called "Diane de Poitiers"; a Rose of Sharon hybiscus very
hardy called "Diane".... Pam's suggestion is perhaps best if you're in a
temperate zone because the witchhazel "Diane" is easy to obtain & easy to
grow & is beautiful for one reason or another in every season of the year.
The Rose of Sharon "Diane" should also be easy to fine & is easy to grow.
The rhododendron "Diane" according to Greer is in production so shouldn't
be hard to find.

show with their bright green leaves changing from yellow, orange, to red. They
are not terribly fussy shrubs: drought resistant, sun or light shade,
moist/well drained soil (neutral/acidic), and little attention required with
In my family, we plant Blue Spruce for significant occasions, except for
when it came time to plant for my mother. We chose two of her favourite
apples and planted apple trees.
