Tiger Lillies, Revisited

(Toledo, OH) Despite their ubiquity, tiger lillies are for me flowers of great beauty and sublimity. I know that summer has officially arrived when the orange-yellow blossoms spring forth.

This particular flower, also known derisively as the "ditch lily," is not a true member of the lily family, and is properly classified as Hemerocallis fulva. They are hardy, and need little in the way of care beyond an occasional watering.

In addition, you can easily split these flowers and turn almost any corner of your yard into another orange daylily zone.
