I can't identify it for you but if it is blooming now it is more then likely (given your location) that it is an asiatic lily. Do you mean it came up before but never bloomed until now? Off the top of my head I would guess it was an immature bulb or offset from another bulb or some kind of environmental damage (ie squirrels, rabbits, frost, insects) but purely guessing since you haven't provided much information to go on. The peonies are known for not blooming if they are planted to deep. You can have one that comes up, beautiful foliage but no blooms. I am far north of you and I try to keep my peonies planted no deeper then an inch. If they get transplanted any time before fall it can set them back a years bloom also. I am sorry you had a fire at your place.

it never even grew untill after the house fire ( we now live in the house next door as we are buying it and the old lot). it has not bloomed yet this year but sure has spread like crazy Smiling this pic was from last year when it was only one plant.. now there are 4 of them. The peony never bloomed untill the house fire but was growing.. that one is a pink peony.

It looks similar to Grand Cru but the yellow doesn't look intense enough. The first photo is too blurry for me to see the details and the second too distant. Let's get a better look when it blooms.

Grand Cru in the data base:
Lily (Lilium 'Grand Cru')

I looked up Asiatic Lillies and it looks identical to them. So i guess it's an Asian Lilly?

Yes, we call them Asiatic lilies. There are crosses between Asiatic lilies and Longiflorum lilies that look a lot like Asiatic lilies. It can be hard to tell the difference and we depend a lot on the information from the breeder to know exactly which "division" a lily is in.

Yes. I'm not sure why, but the class of lilies is Asiatic, not Asian. I might speculate that Asian lilies could correctly be thought of those native to Asia, which would include orientals, trumpets, martagons, etc., as well as asiatics. Asiatic lilies are only a subsection of the lilies that come from Asia.
