Hemerocallis 'Chicago Apache'

Common Name: Daylily

  • 5", intense scarlet red, recurved tepals with a small sulphur yellow watermark and green throat
  • Petals have loosely ruffled edges; sepal edges are slightly crimped
  • Extremely sunfast and more resistant to thrips than most reds
  • A very vigorous grower with healthy foliage and sturdy scapes

Daylilies can survive many harsh conditions that other plants cannot including: polluted city environments, slopes, poor and dry soils, near pavement that is salted in winter, and under Black Walnut trees (not affected by juglone).

Characteristics (Compared to Other Daylilies)
  • Late Midseason Bloomer, blooming in late July.
  • Dormant foliage.
  • Tetraploid with 44 chromosomes, twice as many as Diploids. Tetraploids tend to be bigger, stronger plants.
