I am Richard Labranche, Melissa's husband. She passed away Monday and I am desperately trying to get a multitude of fans of this flower. Who can help me out? I live in Louisiana.

Richard, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Hopefully, someone on the forum knows someone who has your wife's namesake flower. Best of luck, and again, I am sorry for you and your family. May peace be yours in time.

This daylily seller has it listed in their catalogue, but just for display, not for sale. It is worth a try to contact them.

So sorry for your loss, Richard.

Also, Kabby, an active member on NGA, has posted photos. Perhaps if you sent them a tree mail, they may be able to help you.
Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Melissa La Branche')

It is a very beautiful cultivar.

I appreciate everyone who replied with possible places to acquire a few fans of Melissa La Branche. I have been able to order a few but welcome the reply of anyone else that might have this beautiful flower. Thank you all for reading my message - I see 169 views.
