The large blooms of the Chicago Apache Daylily are jaw-dropping and add both texture and intense color to a landscape bed. The crimson flowers have green throats and measure an impressive 5 inches across. Four large petals overlap and have ruffled edges that narrow to a gentle point. The lovely blooms will be on display from June through August. The strap-like foliage is a deep green and grows in a dense mass at the base of the tall stems.

Plant this beauty in beds, borders, or mass plantings. The big flowers and dense growth habit enable this plant to be the centerpiece of a small bed, or the grand scale can easily fill in a large space. Plant this daylily with neutral-hued flowering plants to ensure the deep crimson flowers stand out or go bold with other vibrant-colored perennials. The Chicago Apache Daylily is disease-resistant, drought-tolerant, and grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 8. 

Chicago Apache Daylily Care

This beauty needs at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight, but expect more blooms when grown in high light levels. Soil should be rich, moist, and well-drained. Wait until the top few inches of soil have dried out before giving this plant water, and keep up with watering during dry periods to support continued growth and blooming. 

Feed this daylily using balanced fertilizer throughout the growing season. Deadhead the plant to encourage more blooms. Trim the growth back in the fall.

Chicago Apache Daylily Spacing

The Chicago Apache Daylily is a perennial that will grow 24 to 30 inches tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 16 to 22 inches apart for a continuous planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
