I know there is a lot of confusion surrounding the species H. Kwanso and H. Flore Pleno and I do not want to stir that pot again. In my neighborhood and the places where I drive on a daily basis, I have seen a number of patches of H. Fulva, which have just about all died out by now. But lately I have also noticed a number of patches of a different variety, with tall scapes and flowers similar to H. Fulva, in size, shape and color. From a distance, the most noticeable difference is the vivid orange color. There is one such patch in the yard at the end of my street, so today I took the liberty of photographing a couple of its flowers, and have posted them below.

They are pretty, one of my wife's most favorites. They grow extremely well here. No doubt they are attention grabbers and are very pretty.

The daylilies in your pictures look like Hemerocallis fulva 'Flore Pleno', it has a more layered look than the other triploid fulva double, 'Kwanso'.
