      Hi @shiney
      Thanks so much for the reply! Can’t post a link yet.
      Theres so many types! Do you like them? Only flowers for one day but has lots of flowers? I’ll post another photo when they’re flowering!
      Thank you!

      They're colourful and some are quite spectacular.

      Hey @shiney we only had to wait a day! They’re lovely there’s a couple more I’ll make new posts for. So far all look the same colour! If you’re so good you know the lily name that’d be amazing! Happy to know they are day lilies if you don’t! Thank you!

        Looks like Fulva LoveSunshine :)
        Looks very much like it to me but I don’t grow enough of them to know for sure

        One of my favourites is Hyperion. Pale yellow and scented. A very large clump in a corner of my garden provides a summer of colour :)

        Agree Hemerocallis Fulva.

        Hemerocallis fulva - Wikipedia

        Think you meant.... Looks like Hemerocallis fulva.
        They love sunshine.
        No such thing as Hemerocallis fulva LoveSunshine ....that I could find!
        Thought it must be a fancy new cultivar that I had never heard of.

        Just realised that poster is Lovesunshine. DUH!
        Sorry .

          Lol @Verdun thank you! Looked up Fulva - you guys are very impressive thank you that looks like an exact match!

          I presume they’re all the same! In this patch!

          We inherited them with our new garden and just an observation, (as a novice gardener) - they’ve been growing from nothing at all for months, it seems a real shame to go to all that effort for only flowering one day! I checked earlier and indeed there were different ones flowering! They don’t smell sadly!

          Hmm. Do they like being moved? As they will need to be in a year or so! I’d rather have lilies that smell but we have cats and they can get ill from lillies I’ve heard (think if they ingest the pollen)

          Yep, LoveSunshine, like most perennials they move and divide very easily. :) As a matter of fact, they benefit from this and flower better for it.
          Day lilies...hemerocallis...are not lilies at all so don’t worry at all about any danger to cats. They will be just fine.
          Lots of individual flowers lasting for a day only to be replaced almost immediately with others so the whole plant is in flower for several weeks.
          Some are scented ...some are not.
          Wait and see how they flower during the summer......then you can see if you have different varieties.

            Thanks @Verdun yes we are just seeing what we have this year! Do you know anything about Acanthus? Photo not of ours but to show as just looked it up when it said there’s 30 different types! Ours are growing like weeds all over our new garden - not as neat as the photo haha! garden was very well landscaped about 10 years ago then left to its own devices since by the looks of it (after uncovering all the dead last year’s stuff, grabbing tons of bindweed shoots before too much got covered, and pruning harshly!)
            Our acanthus must’ve gone to seed over the years so we have at least 6-8 separate plants in different spots! RHS website said “virtually impossible to move”?! Would you agree with that?
            I know what it is as mum has some; I like it it’s just quite big and spikey!!
            Would welcome any thoughts! Thank you52F8A300-BEC1-400E-9E32-17D6818B6E94.png

            Acanthus. also known as Bear's Breeches. Cut the stems down to ground level after flowering. eave undisturbed until too big. Can be increased by division and seed and root cuttings. Something around 50 speces to this genus are available.

            Hi Mike,
            Thanks for reply! The leaf stems were surprisingly hollow and easy to break, I just tidied the plants up a bit at ground level as they’ve grown so much the leaves have mostly all flopped over, maybe due to all the rain we’ve had lately! So you’re saying if I do nothing it’ll seed again and make more plants and if I try to dig it up it’ll come back bigger and stronger?! They’re all fine for now but we are building a large extension in around 12-18 months so I could try to move what we like and remove what we don’t! Do they move well? I get that you might get more in the old spot but would it also grow in the new spot too? Thank you!

            If you do nothing. The plant will continue to grow and expand. The seed. This will fall and perhaps self seed if the stems are not cut down. Collected seed can be sown so as to produce more plants.
            Obviously with any plant, shrub or tree. Some can be a bit of a job digging out. Yes some bits may remain, this is upto you to remove any unwanted new growth.
