description for "Daylilies: Hemerocallis x 'Chicago Cattleya'"
Daylily 'Chicago Cattleya' is a large flowered tetraploid with lavender flowers accented with a deep purple halo. This dormant variety blooms once in mid-summer. It's difficult to think of a hardier plant. Their vigorous growth habit is not impeded by any insects or disease. While a profusion of bloom is assured in any sunny garden, part shade is easily tolerated. Although the flower of this plant does indeed last only one day, a scape will have numerous buds, and a plant will have many scapes. Therefore there will be many flowers open at any one time.
