Tiger Lily, Lilium lancifolium
The orange spotted blossoms are falling apart after a particularly severe rain we had a few days ago. This plant was formerly known as Lilium tigrinum, before botanists changed it to L. lancifolium. This is one flowering lily that grows and blooms well in partial shade. Imported long ago, the plant has escaped from gardens and has naturalized through many states in the eastern U.S. Some people feel it is too prolific under the right conditions, although it is pretty and easy to grow. The trouble with "easy to grow non-native" is that native species tend to get crowded out.
