I recently moved down to North Carolina the beginning of last year. I was amazed how many flowering plants that are growing on the property. There is something blooming all year round. There are a few areas that have been overgrown and I have been attempting to clean these up. I found this lily growing behind the garage and I have since relocated it to the backdoor garden area. I am not entirely sure which lily this is although my first impression was that it could be a Yellow Asiatic Lily.

I think this is a daylily, not any Asiatic lily. Threw foliage on daylilies is grass like, with scapes. Asiatic lilies have a single stem, with foliage inn the stem.

It's a Ditch Lily (Fulva), I am pretty sure it is. Because my step-mother has a lot of that type growing in her backyard. It's a pretty flower but the plant itself spreads through it's roots really fast. By the way, welcome to the NGA. It is so nice to see new members. My name is Ian if you were wondering. Welcome!

Thank you for your responses. Are daylilies and Ditch Lilies the same? I did a search on both and the results brought up the same images. The one image that looked identical to my flower was entitled "Double Orange Ditch Lily".

Yes, ditch lilies are part of the daylily family and are the same too. But they are are triploids. So if you wanted to crossbreed other daylilies, they would have to be ditch lilies or triploid daylilies. Which I don't think their are any other triploid daylilies except ditch lilies. Of what I heard from others, ditch lilies are found as a wild flower. But where I live at they aren't really found as one. They are USUALLY found in people's yards and/or in in flower beds.

This is also another kind of ditch lily. I used to have a ton of
these. But now I have the double petal ones, like you have.
