    Great Performer in Zone 7A

    Jeff McLean (verified owner)

    Chicago Apache was one of my first daylilies from Oakes. It took a while to bloom, but the red was vibrant and the blooms were strong. So I ordered a few more to add to this “side attraction” in my garden. The ground where Chicago Apache was planted has not been amended, but the second year was as good as the first. And I’m thinking about adding more plants to this section of the garden, which gets no care but performs very well. Blazing brilliant red!

  2. A Delightful Surprise

    I first ordered these about 5 years sago. I fell in love with them, and even bought some for my daughter’s garden. At my home they were about 20 inches tall, and lovely. Since then I have moved in with my daughter. The ‘lApache’ I bought here are still in bloom (Sept 1) and here are almost 3 feet tall and just glorious. It will always be my favorite. The color never fades. It surpassed them all in my estimation.

    Rust Resistant!

    JeanneHensley (verified owner)

    I am in the Houston, Texas area and have really had to deal with daylily rust. I read that Chicago Apache was rust resistant and ordered a dozen this January,(2020). They are blooming now beautifully and their foilage looks wonderful. I will be ordering more. Also they are a very lovely shade of red.

    What is your hardiness zone? Zone 7

    30114 zone 7 clay. Many really red blooms every season. Nice thick clumps could be divided now after 4 seasons.

    I have hesitated for years to give this daylily a bad review because all my other daylilies from Oakes have been awesome. But Chicago Apache is my least favorite. The color is not vibrant and is very inconsistent. I always dead-head my spent blooms and these stain your hands. They do produce lots of blooms and maybe a whole garden of just this variety would be beautiful. Another plus is that they can be divided multiple times and all my divisions have done very well. For these reasons I give Chicago Apache a 4 star rating. Unfortunately, I do not like this variety and I am in the process of digging all my divisions up and giving them away.

    As most of the early to mid-season daylilies are fading, Chicago Apache is just beginning and so welcome. The blooms are rich, brilliant red with a thick texture and holds well in the sun. We have three (started with one that we have divided) in full sun and love them paired with solid yellow, yellow with red eye, and near white. This one will not disappoint.

    I love this daylily. The red is vibrant and welcomes a second look. My clump is getting huge and will soon need splitting up. Can’t wait to spread her around my garden.

    I have had this one for about 7 or 8 years, it is a staple in the garden. The plant is VERY vigorous and seems to require dividing at least every other year, so I have several huge clumps now and have given some away. (With organic fertilizer, it is almost “weed-like.”) I did have it in a dry location with absolutely no shade, and it tended to fade. It is really prettier in an area w/ some dappled shade. I have never seen it re-bloom. After it blooms, sometimes the foliage turns yellow and needs to be cut back. So, it is not really as “maintenance free” as some of the newer varieties, which is the only reason I did not give it a 10. Otherwise, it is a great plant and a great value since it increases rapidly.

    A true star in my garden — and a true red! In it’s 3rd year Chicago Apache’s foliage spans over 3 feet in diameter! Mine is taller than 27 inches. This year’s blooms have just started, and with the 18 or so extra-sturdy scapes I’m sure it will be in bloom for quite awhile! As stated by another gardener, flowers are like red velvet. I really love this exciting daylily!!

    Chicago Apache performed beautifully for just planting it in April. Its color is as pictured. Can’t wait to see it side by side with Scarlet Apache. I look forward to it for many years.

    Beautiful velvet red blooming for a month in late summer. Mine does not rebloom. Does not fade & even can be picked for a one day show in a vase or buds will open over days once picked. A truely great red for reliability and beauty.

    This has always been a great performer for me, with about a month of bloom. It establishes quickly, too. I never got it to rebloom for me.

    This was my first red daylily and I’ve enjoyed 3-4 weeks of blooms every year (even during our severe dry summers). A real strong red that can stand up to our Georgia sunshine. Can’t go wrong with this one.
