    Lady Lucille

    jenstrieper (verified owner)

    This is such a great color in real life. Lady Lucille is a bright cheery orange with highlights that are more yellow so that the effect is a bright and happy color. The plant seems healthy and strong and bloomed the first summer after they were planted in the fall.

    Stunning!

    melody cagle (verified owner)

    Stunning is the only word I can think of to describe this daylily. It literally lights up the garden. Not a ditch lily orange at all. Oakes’ service is unsurpassed. Their shipping is on time and the plants are just beautiful every time I receive a shipment. Just great people to deal with!

    PERFECTION!!!

    Thames (verified owner)

    I have received Oakes catalogs for years and carefully look through every page, but I just can’t find another day lily that I am as smitten with as Lady Lucille. This lady is stunning, blooms and blooms and blooms and beckons everyone for a closer look. You can’t go wrong with Oakes or this beautiful flower!

    Extremely hardly gets more beautiful by the year

    Debby Hood

    OK since orange isn’t my favorite color I kept moving Lucille around to different spots. Apparently, she left a little part of her root in different spots because she is popping up everywhere! The place that gets the most water has a darker orange color and the ones in the drier spot are a little more orange/ orange.
    She is becoming a favorite of mine. Very big blooms and beautiful scapes.!

    Outstanding, right out of the gate!

    Ann Hancock (verified owner)

    When Blooms of Bressingh released this day lily, I trailed in in the Michigan State University Perennial Trials, in Zone 5. Lady Lucille was an instant success and one of the few plants that I gave a 5-star evaluation rating. It was vigorous with nice foliage that held up well through the growing season. The flower display stopped visitors in their tracks. This cultivar is a must have for any day lily connoisseur!

    I planted two Lady Lucille last year in my northern Indiana garden. They are in a half day sun area, and this year have 8 & 9 scapes respectively. Lucille has begun to bloom just as Mauna Loa stopped, and so they have kept the beautiful, hot orange color going. She has large flowers, bright clear color, and a high bud count – just the things I look for in a daylily!

    Wow, this Beautiful and Bright Daylily is still blooming mid-Oct. and based on the blooms it will be blooming all the way until the end of Oct. It began June 29, and paused in Aug. only to begin again in the 3rd week of Sept. I split the fans I was sent last year into two plants and both have done equally well in zone 7 Middle Tn. I have had 6 blooms open on 2 scrapes at one time. You won’t regret this purchase!

    This is such a stunning lily! I have an area dedicated to this lily and also Real Wind. The vibrant orange of Lady Lucille is softened by the light, peachy blooms of Real Wind. Together, they both make me gasp at the sheer beauty, and sigh at the subtle nuances of the pairing. This is their first year, and each plant had multiple scapes. I look forward to them multiplying into a dazzling display. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

    I purchased Lady Lucille Spring of 2013 – didn’t bloom in first year. In June of this year I moved from Iowa to Boise, Idaho. I dug up this plant, along with my other day lilies, putting plants into small boxes with dirt around roots, transported in back of our pickup with a plastic tarp. The plants were out of the ground for two weeks. Today, Lady Lucille, had it’s first flower. It was worth the wait – the flower is absolutely stunning – bright orange with red – really stands out in my garden. I have it planted right next to Autumn Wood, another amazing plant purchased from Oakes Daylilies. All 13 of my day lilies purchased from this great Company have all survived the recent move and are all blooming. Oakes sells the very best plants.

    Oh my goodness! The first day of bloom was so breathtaking I wanted to come outside before breakfast. The scapes are tall and the bloom is incredibly big. I love it and want more. Thanks Oakes.

    It would be difficult to find a better orange daylily. I have had it in my N. Idaho garden for 13 years and it just gets better every year. It doesn’t need to be divided to keep blooming and is not bothered by cold weather in the winter, and It doesn’t seem to be bothered by being crowded. It averages about 25 to 30 scapes and 350 to 400 buds now, but of course started out with only a few scapes when young and increased every year.

    ‘Lady Lucille’ is a refined beauty indeed… far more appealing in person than the catalog picture! This is her first full growing season in my garden, and the blooms continued from late May through mid July (zone 8b). ‘Lady Lucille’ is my all-time favorite daylily!!

    I hadn’t ordered because of this picture, so this is my first year – if I were Lucille I’d call my agent and complain about the pic! She is so beautiful – like Tuscawilla Tigress but shorter and cranked up a notch.

    Lady Lucille is a knock-your-socks-off daylily. She has been blooming in my garden for 2 years. I couldn’t be more pleased with her performance. The color is simply stunning. If you get a chance plant Mauna Loa (which I have) as well, and then you will be like me – trying to decide which just elicits the oohh’s and aahh’s more. Manua Loa’s blooming period is ending when Lady Lucille is beginning and I get dizzy looking back and forth, trying to decide which is more beautiful.

    AHS or not — Lady Lucille is an exquisite beauty! Such a vibrant neon orange with large blossoms. A real stand-out in my garden, literally glistening in the afternoon sun! And this is only her first year in my garden! The photo pictured does not capture her brilliance!

    Lady Lucille is a class act. She has turned more than a few heads in my garden. She has a Tuscan quality about her, grand and worldly.

    Lady Lucille produces multiple rich deep orange blooms that are nonfading and long lasting. A surprisingly deligtful choice.

    I ordered this daylily two years ago, and it has really come into its own this year. There were so many blooms (there are still a few left to bloom), and the gorgeous orange blooms are HUGE! My neighbors (and I!!!) LOVE my Oakes Daylilies!
