Hemerocallis x 'Chicago Royal Robe'
|One of the most diverse groups of perennials with more than 34,000 types available in the United States. Single or double flowers of almost every color appear in succession through the summer, each fading after 1 day. Easy to grow, resistant to heat and drought, use in dry or water gardens, containers or mass on slopes. New varieties are always being introduced, some of dwarf height, with more intensely-colored flowers, more vigorous growth or longer blooming seasons. Some are semi-evergreen. In China, the buds and dried flowers are an edible delicacy. Remove old flowers daily to prolong bloom. Do not over-fertilize as more foliage than blooms appear. Generally pest-resistant, in mild climates protect against slugs and snails. Start by division of vigorous growing clumps.
The deep plume-purple flowers have green throats.
