Hemerocallis fulva

What is now known as the common daylily--or Ditch Lily, Old Orange, or Tawny--was introduced into the US in the late 1800's as an ornamental plant. Since then it has become the mother of some 40,000 registered cultivar.

It is so easily grown (and self-spreads by division of its thick, tuberous roots) that it is present as a wildflower in nearly every state. It is immensely useful as a ground cover to control erosion.

Flowers are both fragrant and edible.
