All-American Daylilies
Winners 2002

Leebea Orange Crush
45-175 Bloom Days
Heat & Salt Tolerant
Double Winner!
One of the rare daylilies exhibiting such balanced performance that it wins in both the Landscape & Exhibition categories.  With its handsome, uniform foliage and profusion of blooms, Leebea Orange Crush is stunning in a mass planting.  Spring planting and mulch cover the first winter after planting is advised in USDA zones 4-6.  ‘Landscape’ & ‘Exhibition’ winner.
Bitsy

Tolerates Extreme Heat&Cold
Earliest Blooming Variety
One of the longest blooming varieties.  Its tiny 2 inch lemon-yellow blossoms appear very early in the season above 12-20 inch slender, grassy foliage.  Bitsy blooms so long that many will want to plant it in colour beds.  You’ll be charmed by its petite personality and sold by its powerful performance.  ‘Landscape’ winner 

Judith
45-150 Bloom Days
Heat & Cold Tolerant 
Up to 50 Blooms per Scape
A profusion of glowing pink blossoms are displayed on this “All-American” winner.  This large, vigorous variety holds its own towards the back of the perennial bed or among roses.  Gardeners should know that pink is a variable colour in daylilies.  Factors can cause the blossoms to range in colour from pale pastel pink to rich, salmon pink.  ‘Exhibition’ winner
