Hemerocallis fulva is the species form of daylily with reddish orange
flowers ("fulva" means reddish orange in Latin - the scientific name of the
red fox is Vulpes fulva) that has escaped from cultivation and was (is) a
common roadside plant in the Northeast (talk about I. pseudacorus being
invasive). It is a common plant in older gardens here, but can't establish
itself in the wild in the face of our bone-dry summers.
