  • TB 'Divine Light' was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately June 4-9, in 2017. It looked like the clump may have been thinned in 2015 or 2016, as it was a sparser clump. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 15 Aug 2017
  • TB 'Divine Light' does have very light Purple Based Foliage at the base of its leaves. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 15 Aug 2017
