This is a daylily I got in a trade years ago and although I totally neglect it, it does very well on its own. It blooms for a long time and blooms seem perfect every time one opens. Substance is very good on it also and it has an average increase.

Chicago Star is in an overflow garden. Without care it never fails to bloom every year. It is like Chicago Star knows that it is on the back burner, because it produces fantastic, huge, and bright blooms that say, "LOOK AT ME.". I keep saying I am going to move it to a front garden bed, but I just have not done it. I would have to give it a high rating because it looks great in the heat and does not need babying.

May today and every day find you richly blessed!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
