Daylilies are starting to go full force down here right now and one of my early and best performers is the wonderful Chicago Apache. It has deep red petals with a golden throat. The color stands out from a great distance and is quite eye-catching.
It is a profuse bloomer for me and makes for a thick clump wherever I plant it. Put it in a sunny or part shade area and it will thrive even on neglect. The flowers hold color better if they get some afternoon shade.
The color in this last photo is a different shade because of the low-light conditions that were present when it was taken. Just look how healthy this plant and the flowers are. I can't imagine not having daylilies all over. They provide nearly two months of delicious blooms for me - and even longer when some of them re-bloom. Scatter some clumps of daylilies liberally around in your flower beds for a great splash of color in late spring and early summer.
