I used to have yellow lilies in my ditch and my dad told me they were called lemon lilies.

Here's some info about it:

I haven't seen the yellow lilies you mentioned. when I lived in my apartment there was a woman I was friends who offered me the divided plants from her father's gardens. He had dozens of varities! I brought them to my mom & we still have them...they're just bald LOL!

One is a deep red/burgandy shade with orange-yellow throats. They are beautiful AND fragrant - I'd had no idea that daylilies could smell nice!

Do let us know what you end up with!

Stay calm and carry on.

Thank you! Yes I have found the tops of some of my flowers are being eaten by something during the night, I was thinking coons, maybe deer.
Have you seen the yellow lily that looks just like the ditch (orange one) lily?
It is very pretty I am seeing them around homes this year.

I want to be the person my Dog thinks I am!

In my part of Virginia there are zillions of the plain orange lilies (the term ditch lily is a good one!) in ditches & along the roadsides all over the place. They are beautiful!

Several years ago I found what my mom calls tiger lilies at a Wal-Mart in WVA. They are orange w/the black spots on the petals.

I have found lilies very easy to grow, but they are also VERY tasty to the deer. If you have deer in your area you might find yourself w/lots of green sticks instead of pretty lilies! Good luck!

Stay calm and carry on.

Great information! And a great web site!
Thank you! Now I have to go out and see what kind I have. Ditch or tiger!
I also see a bright yellow flower along homes now! They look like the ditch lily but are yellow.

Common names can be confusing because one plant can have many common names and a common name can be used for a few different plants.
I live near Kansas City, Mo. and usually around here a ditch lily is the old fashioned orange daylily which has leaves about 1 inch wide and 12-18 inches long all growing at the base of the plant. It sends up stems around 3 feet high with the flowers at the end of the stem
Tiger lilies on the other hand, send up a stem 3-4 feet tall with short leaves all along the stem. A group of orange flowers with black spots bloom at the top of the stem. Tiger lilies also produce little black bulbuals where the leaf meets the stem. These fall off and produce more plants.
Again since these are common names that is what hey are called around here.

Also tiger lilies belong to the Lillium plant family. davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1025/

Where as day lilies belong to the Hemerocallis family so are not true lilies

A big thank you!
I found a lady who sells them from her front yard, I am going to go and check them out.
I already have the ditch wild flower my mom got from my Grandma's farm. Mom calls it tiger lily. So I am just not sure the difference between it and day lilies.
Thanks again.

Day lilies are super easy to grow in just about any soil condition. One of my favorites is the 'ditch lily'. I have them in my shady wood line garden and in the hot sun in the ditch.
Another favorite of mine this year is the " Ruby SPider'. IT grows super fast and the color is just amazing to me.... find more info at :

IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

Can't find me - I am always in the garden:

Almost all of the day lilies you buy from nurseries any more are the clumping type.

Thank you.
I know the tiger eye lily is a ditch wild flower but I was not sure about a day lily.
I believe I will, dig up the side yard and go for it.

I love the 'ditch lilies',they grow everywhere, but if they are invasive, I'll leave them there and plant the ones that will stay put.

We had day lilies in MI around a tree and they grew very well.

You are so right. We had to take them out down by the pond as they were "out of control". The ones in the field are not bothering anything so I just leave them.

I like the ditch lilies too, they just need to be in a place that they won't take over other things you want to grow.

I have "ditch lilies" in the field just south of the house. I know they will take over the area but I don't have the heart to get rid of them. They look great with the wild Queen Anne's Lace and Blackeyed Susans.

Daylilies are very easy to grow! The old fashion daylilies, the orange ones commonly refered to as ditch lilies would run and take over large areas. Most of the newer varieties form clumps up to about 1 foot in diameter and are easy to contain. They come in a huge variety of colors and heights and prefer mostly sun but will grown in part shade.

Day lilies grow well here in southern NH. There are so many beautiful shades to choose from but I've found the most prolific and reliable is Stella D'Oro.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

They are very hardy so I say go for it. Here is a great article I found on the web. There are so many varieties - can't wait to see what you plant.
