These plants were donated by my sister-in-law late last summer and these are its first blooms. I don't really grow lilies and don't know anything about what I have. She did not know the name of the plants. I know it is perhaps difficult to identify a plant, particularly a daylily with so many varieties, but hopefully someone will know what I have. I like to have my plants properly labeled.

The reason it's so hard to lose weight when you get up in age is because your body and your fat have become good friends.

I think you might be right. The pictures sure do look almost identical. I appreciate you replying, Susan. Is this a pretty common daylily? I am mainly into tropical plants, and my passion is orchids. Lovey dubby

A very common daylily, it can be invasive. Unlike newer more modern daylilies.

Thanks for the information, Ashton. I "box-in" my ginger and canna out in the landscape, and will do the same with these. I have a mixture of daylilies and irises in a corner of my raised garden, so boxing them in will be quite easy.

Also look at 'Flore Pleno' and yes it is very common, I am giving away tons of them. Just noticed this was in the lilies forum, but it is not a lily, but a daylily. Just wanted to clear that up.

Just wanted to add that even though it is very common, with all the others I have , it is still my wife's favorite. She keeps asking if I am giving them all away, and I say no I have plenty more, then she asks again!

I told you straight up, I did not grow these, and I just saw the lily and not the daylily forum. My bad. *Blush*

Seriously! It is no big deal if a daylily lands here once in a while! Smiling

With my lack of knowledge about daylilies and lilies, it is no telling what you will see me post. *Blush* Heck, I still don't know the difference. Sticking tongue out
