I found these lillies in our woods & transplanted them in one of our gardens. At first I thought they may be tiger lillies. They just opened up today & I've never seen such a lily. We've seen the leaves in the woods for years, but never seen them bloom. It appears to have triple leaves/blossom. Was wondering if anyone could tell me more about these... The name? Type? Do they often grow in the wild? Was thinking about transplanting more around the house so they get the sun they need to open up like that. Any info would be greatly appreciated Smiling

Welcome!

They are Daylilies. I have a similar one - it grows like a weed.

It appears to be the daylily Hemerocallis fulva 'Flore Pleno'. Some pictures below, although it sometimes gets confused with 'Kwanso' which has a more muddled flower.

Oh darn! Now I have to give you the bad news: Daylilies aren't really Lilies.
