orange daylily, Hemerocallis fulva

Summer is here! The roadside show has started. So many beautiful flowers flash by as we drive. No mind that many of them are alien. They're beautiful. Daylilies are a big part of the summer show. There just aren't that many orange flowers. These grow in large patches that get almost everyone's attention, and account for their sometimes name of ditch-lilies. Also called tiger lilies by people that don't know better. These can be seen in every state except AK, AZ, CA, HI, ND, NM, NV and OK, and in Canada they are in NB, NS, ON, PE, and QC.
