Chicago Orchid Daylily
The Daylily 'Chicago Orchid', Hemerocallis 'Chicago Orchid', is a favorite summer blooming perennial with large clumps of long grass-like leaves with showy clusters of orchid lily-like flowers on tall stems.
A midseason bloomer, this 'Chicago Orchid' plant produces several flower stalks with up to a dozen buds. The buds open in series, but a flower lasts only a day, giving the plant its common name, Daylily!
Daylilies grow vigorously, help suppress weeds, and are generally free from pests and disease. They thrive in full sun or light shade and tolerate many types of soil. In areas that receive less than 6 hours of sun during the day, your daylilies will probably produce fewer and smaller blooms, and the foliage may not be as robust.
Divide every 3-5 years, or when the number of flower buds and the size of bloom begin to decline. Planted together in large numbers, they quickly crowd out weeds and make a carefree and colorful ground cover.
Because it blooms all summer, has gorgeous color, and an attractive, clumping foliage, ‘Chicago Orchid’ is a pleasure to have in any garden!
