Leebea Orange Crush

During the Fourth of July weekend, 2003, I decided to do a little planting to fill in some areas where earlier planted bulbs had died off.  Since I didn't have any Hemerocallis (Daylilies), I decided to plant some so I went to the nursery and got three beauties.  One is an All American winner, this one from 2002, called Leebea Orange Crush.  The source of the name is obvious!

Leebea Orange Crush produced it's last blossom on 15 July having given about a month's worth of gorgeous blooms.

Well, it's the first day of summer 2006 and Leebea Orange Crush has responded by opening three gorgeous blossoms.

In late June to early July 2009, Leebea Orange Crush began to bloom and I got a few photos.  One evening however, something visited the garden and ate all of the remaining buds, as well as those on the other lilies and daylilies!  I am not at all happy!

Mid-June 2010 has brought with it the bloom of Leebea Orange Crush.
