My Orange Day Lilies are just full of bloom. And the white one rivals it for attention..

The orange day lily’s scientific name is Hemerocallis fulva. “Hemerocallis” comes from two Greek words which mean “beautiful” and “day.” The “day” part refers to the brevity of the blooms, since a day lily stem may carry a cluster of several buds, yet only one or two of these will be in bloom at a time—and the large blooms will last only a day.
We have had the orange day lilies in our family since I was a child and moved them from house to house..These are blooming in front of my house..
