Chicago Apache Day Lily

We have several new varieties of day lilies this year.  Chicago Apache is one of them.  Both Betsy and I enjoy its bright red color in our front yard.

I do not know how it is possible, but each one gets prettier.

I came across the first one you put up and have it in a big pot. It has lots of bulbs so in the fall I will break them up and fill more pots so they can grow indoors in winter.

The ones outside I can't dig in the hard soil I don't know how they survive.
but the ones in the pots are doing well.
So far the second one you put up is my favorite. The luxurious texture of the petals is beautiful.

It's nice to see a little bit of Chicago in Tennessee. I love my home town, but I'm glad to live in the 'burbs, where we don't have so much congestion. Beautiful color reproduction, and tack-sharp, George!

I have never seen such a red Lily. It is awesome. We only have white, greenish, pinkish and yellowish ones here. That has to be imported too.
