This one shocked me, I expected a simple flag (ditch lily, Tawny) and got this magnificence - 18 petals, a full six in three layers... any ideas who he is????

Some else suggested Kwanso?

Are poly do you mean multiple layers instead of just one layer of 6 petals?

Looks like Hemerocallis Flore Pleno to me. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/29149/

Karen, the link showed petals that were offset. Mine are stacked perfectly on top of one another... Yet the neutral comment said Kwanso is the unruly one...? Either way, love it.

All three are invasive. What you have is the Flero Plano, the triple one. The double one is Kwanso and the single one is Fulva the ditch lily. BEV

Not sure how it spreads compared to H. fulva, that one is REALLY invasive. I had Kwanso and it was not quite as bad.

Oh, happy day! I can mow around the edges if it gets out of hand...which isn't likely. I'm looking at 180' x 40 feet of mostly red clay. Let it spread, let it spread, let it spread!

Could the Flero plano be contained by planting in a pot or something? a washtub maybe? It is beautiful with all those layers, but I wouldn't want it getting out of control. Guess I would need to look - it might even be listed on the state's invasive list...

Years ago I found clay chimney flues at a going out of business sale, they ranged in size from 8" to 24" across and just as tall, circular and straight-sided with open tops and bottoms. I used them ABOVE ground as planters, everywhere there were planters! But I bet they'd work really well for below ground invasion control. And they are pretty too.

Those clay chimney flues do sound like they would be good for below ground invasive control. I would use the 24" one, as I don't think the 8" one would go down deep enough.

I don't think the Flore Pleno is as invasive as H. fulva. I have it, and it doesn't spread much for me. I also have Kwanso, and that one has spread quite a bit. It shares a bed with several other invasives, namely tradescantia, mint and raspberries.
