daylily ‘Chicago Apache’
Hemerocallis ‘Chicago Apache’ (daylily ‘Chicago Apache’) a beautiful, lily-like flowers that lights up our garden all summer long with a continuous series of rich red blooms with golden yellow throats.
Its thin, grass-like foliage lasts most of the year, only lying flat ready to be cut back by spring. Each of its flowers only lasts one day (hence the common name daylily), but ‘Chicago Apache’ consistently creates new blooms from June through August. Native to Eurasia, the Hemerocallis genus has been bred into nearly every color imaginable. It is a favorite in our garden because of its long bloom time and wonderful red and yellow contrast in the blooms. The plant does not usually require dividing for several years but are easily split apart in fall or early spring.
