One of the perennials I planted in my garden years ago faithfully blooms every summer.
Orange daylily is a popular ornamental that has escaped and is invaded natural and disturbed areas throughout the United States. Leaves are long, grass-like, and bright green in color. Flowers are large, showy, and orange in color. Flowers may have spots or stripes. Daylilies are clump forming perennials with arching, grasslike or straplike leaves 10-40 in long, depending on the cultivar. All the leaves arise from the base of the plant in two opposing ranks, resulting in a fanlike appearance which becomes obscured as the clump enlarges. A leafless stalk, called a scape, extends above the leaves and bears the flowers. Most scapes have two or more branches, each with several flower buds. In most varieties the flowers open one at a time, and last only one day, but the blooming period may extend for weeks, even months. Source.
