Plant Common Name

Chicago Gown Daylily, Daylily

General Description

revered for its reliability, ease of growth and beauty. The early blooming ‘Chicago Gown’ offers large blooms that are lavender with a darker eyezone. They are day-blooming and arise from neat clumps of green strap-like leaves that go fully dormant in winter.

Daylilies are easy to grow if provided with full to partial sun, and average soil with good drainage. Their clumps spread over time and may need to be divided every three to four years. After plants bloom, it is wise to shear back their foliage to allow for a fresh flush of growth. Enjoy these tried and true ornamentals in mixed beds and borders, containers and large mass plantings.
