Introduced from Asia. Blooming period is about a month during midsummer, and each bloom lasts only a day. “Has been in cultivation for a long time and often outlasts the buildings that surround it and their inhabitants.” Lily Family. Thanks to Alert Flowerophile and Day Lily Queen Donna for pointing this out and assuring me it counts as wild.
Orange Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva)
Hmm. Looks somewhat like Mom’s Charleston Harvest Gold, doesn’t it? But how is that related to the Asiatic Lily? The blossom is similar, I think, but the leaves are very different. I have both Day Lilies and Asiatic Lilies in the garden and their leaves are so different that I never even related them to each other.
