There are two different cultivars sold under the name 'Lady Lucille'!

1) A bright orange 2004 All-America Selection Blooms of Bressingham 'Lady Lucille' which is very popular...

2) A melon 'Lady Lucille' hybridized and AHS registered by Warrell in 2012. (
https://www.daylilies.org/Dayl... described in this garden.org entry.

The orange 'Lady Lucille' is sometimes mistakenly linked to Warrell as the hybridizer, for example, https://davesgarden.com/guides...

Photos of both daylilies have been uploaded to this single database entry. Perhaps someone could create a second database entry for the orange 'Lady Lucille'. :)
