These come in several colors ranging from yello to spotted yellow and shades of orange.

Hi Azalea, beautiful photo of Belamcanda, but this is probably B. flabellata, the yellow species. B. chinensis is the orange one.

Interesting... As I recall T & M has Belamcanda in their catalogue, and show a purple one also, which is definitely NOT a Belamcanda. Yours looks to me like the one called 'Hello Yellow'.

Is the foliage on the yellow flowered ones a bit more blue, and the plants shorter?

Interesting...I started my plants from seed, too. It was called Park's Candy Lilies (Pardancanda), a cross between Belamcanda and something or other. They no longer offer them, so I can't look it up. I got yellow and orange blooms, some with spots. Uploading a picture to this site.

I gathered seeds from B. specimens that ranged from red-brown to pale yellow, spotted, banded, or striped with contrasting colors. With open pollination, over 6 years, one stand has become almost solely yellow (flabellata?), with little contrasting color. Another stand has become almost solely orange (chinensis?), with some spottiness. A third stand still shows a wide range of variation.
I wonder if the originals were hybrids, and some are reverting to type. Is there evidence that the B. spp form hybrids?
I am very confused as to what sp I have.
