This lovely double orange daylily is a vigorous grower in moist soil but is easily kept in check in my un-watered garden. A neighbour gave me a few fans many years ago and now I have several large clumps in the garden. It blooms later than most every other daylily, helping provide vibrant colour in August before the Asters start to bloom.
Not too sure where I found the Lily but it has been growing in a semi-shaded spot for about 12 years now. The bulb multiplies underground every year and it also produces small bulbils on the stalk that will ripen over the summer, drop to the ground and help form a small colony. This Lily is cultivated in parts of Asia as a food source (the bulb).
