Those are beautiful! I prefer the orange ones, just because that's the kind both my grandmothers had and I grew up with them. My stepmother has a huge bunch of them in her yard, too. What I would love to have it a trumpet vine growing along my fence. Those are beautiful.

I like different colors, the more colorful the better. My favorite though is the orange or coral and yes, the yellow ones are very pretty too. No don't have any growing here.

Blackberry lily - This little flower is about as big across as a quarter. There are multiples on each stem. The leaves are not spiral like Asiatic lilies but are flat and remind me of gladiolus.
I love lilies. What we called tiger lilies when I was a kid were always deep rich orange with brown or black freckles in the throat.Now there are so many more varieties of tiger lilies, it is like growing a rainbow. I do not have any of them. I do have some Asiatic lilies, some orange, some darker orange and some white. I used to have some pink and some lemon yellow and some tan, but I think it has gotten too shady for them where they are. I need to find them a new home.I went to look for an image of a lily that I really love online to see if I could post it, but cannot post them as they are copy righted. I love Stargazers. It turns out they are also considered tiger lilies. They are deep fuschia red, with dark purple freckles and a white rim on the edges. There is also a version that is white in the middle with red edges. I guess my favorite lily right now is my blackberry lily. I do not know if it will bloom this year, but the flowers are about as big across as a quarter. They have freckles and are shades of orange. I will try to add an image of it.

My Asiatics were in a shaded area and they leaned so far over for sunshine they nearly touched the ground. I still have a few to transplant this fall though into a sunny area. I love the blackberry vaRIETY. i MAY LOOK INTO THEM NEXT SPRING. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

These are one lily I didn't have when I had my yard and garden, always wanted them though. Maybe when I get my own place again you can hook me up with a root :) These are beautiful and I like them more than the orange.

stargazer lily - This is a cross-stitched stargazer lily.
I think my favorite would be the Stargazer lilies. I had them at my last place and again here, but something got them last year.

Day lilies, lots and lots of them. My favorite is kind of a busy orange one. We've been handing pieces of it down since before my parents moved out of the house I grew up in in 1988.

Legend Of The Lily - Thought you'd enjoy reading this
When we bought this house there was and still is, orange tiger lilies which are beautiful. They must be very popular in this area because along the roadways there's a bunch of them growing. They're here and there but when we do see them, they're in bunches. Very pretty. Now the first time you mentioned these flowers, I remembered mom having a poem called "Legend of the Lily" which I finally got a copy of to post here for you. Right interesting, don't you think?
