LarryW said:The bright orange daylily known to many of us as "Lady Lucille" is unregistered. It has been around for many, many years - - probably introduced in the 1970's or perhaps before that. What the site in question appears to have done is trade mark the name and list the date they did so on their page (2006) which makes it look legitimate as a registered cultivar to those who don't know otherwise. There was a daylily registered with the AHS in 2012 that actually has the name H. Lady Lucille (Warrell, 2012) that looks nothing like the orange one. The ATP database correctly shows the 2012 registered daylily. It appears that this company has done the same thing with some of the other older daylilies, even AHS registered daylilies. Look at Lavender Vista. There is no photo in the AHS database, but when you Google it, you get many pictures that look just like the All American picture and one or two that have a red-purple eye as described in the AHS registration. The picture in the ATP database does not have the red-purple eye.
Also, based on what their web site says, All American Daylilies is a brand name used to sell their products and has no connection with or endorsement from the AHS or any other daylily organization. They say all "All-American" daylilies have bee tested and grow well across 5 USDA hardiness zones. Their advertising methodology is, at best, misleading.
