    Default Our Orange Lily

    Here is an orange lily that I transplanted. It grows like mad! Lots of people in Clarksville seem to have them in their flowerbeds and yards. I think they are really elegant on their tall stems.

    Cheers!

    Those are pretty, but it's not a lily (Lilium), it's a daylily (Hemerocallis). I get kind of picky about stuff like this. Forgive me.

    :check: Yeah, you're right they aren't Lilies, but they are beautiful. I have about a dozen different varieties, all but 2 the evergreen type so they stay attractive year 'round. Bruce's looks like the native plant, which is about 36" tall with solid orange blossoms.

    It's probably Hemerocallis fulva. I know these go way back in American history and originally came here from China or Japan.

    Okay, I'm living dangerously, contradicting THE MAN on tubers, etc. but if it is hemerocallis fulva, then it came originally from Europe.

    please don't kick me outta the club, please....pretty please....

    Kev is quite right about it being a day-lily (Hemerocallis), rather than a lily (Lilium). I was going to post a similar comment. I will add, though, it's still a member of the lily family. (Along with genera like Smilacina, Maianthemum, Alllium, Tofieldia, Clintonia, Smilax, Uvularia, Zigadenus, Polygonatum, Streptopus and even Asparagus. Probably others I've overlooked, too.) I'm not sure what point I was trying to make with this post, other than common names can be confusing.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    You probably are right. I would imagine it was grown in gardens in Europe and those folks brought it over here. I think the Europeans got it from the East.

    You're right too. I do a lot of trading in both plants - Lilium and Hemerocallis and it just bugs me to death when someone says they have such and such a lily when they really mean daylily.

    That's why I HATE COMMON NAMES.

    Now that I think of it and to confuse the issue even more all these plants are really part of the Family Liliaceae. Lilium and the ones you mentioned would be various genera within this family. Right?
