Chicago Rosy

As you have probably noticed, I have several dayliles that have Chicago in their name.  I have a favorite Chicago daylily and it is Chicago Rosy.  It is tall, it is large and it blooms for a long period of time.  I don't enjoy dividing daylilies every year, like Stella D'Oro, so I appreciate it when maybe every three or four years I can share my daylilies.

Chicago Rosy is probably a four or five year division candidate, but it is a great performer during this time of multiplying.  The flower is large, orange-red in color and has strong scapes that show in all directions.  It grows 25 - 30 " with 6.5" flowers. I have ordered from them several times.
