Some are native....some are definitely not and will take over an entire area if left on their own.

I believe that is the one she's wishing I could bring to her. Mine are not mature enough to divide yet and of a different variety now that I see what she's wanting. Mine are the Lilium michiganense (Michigan lily)

GUESS WHAT!
We've LOST the USDA plant database since the shutdown.

Some of the state or was it the national parks sites don't come in anymore either. Lucky we finished up on the researching of the trip when we did!

They're called Chicago lilies and Tiger Day lilies too. Scientific name is Hemerocallis fulva. I think the best name for them is ditch lilies since they really can over run a place.

It makes sense that the national parks website would be down.... they want to make it look like everything's coming to a screeching halt when it's not. I read that pretty much everything was being classified "essential" and that only 25% of government "services" went down. Bet the IRS is alive and well hounding people. Good news.... all the chefs in the WH were considered essential and this was considered essential too Government 'Shut Down' Doesn't Prevent Opening of $2 Billion NSA Spy Center - informationliberation Sooooo.... throughout this so-called "shut down"..... we're still being kept "safe" because they're watching our computers and phones and i thingies and everything else they can monitor to keep us "safe" all the while our lands go even farther to H E double hocky sticks in a hand bag. Just think of how much restoration work we could do across our nation if just the NSA was shut down.... why we'd have had $10.8 BILLION $$$ alone to put toward clean up and things like ohhhhh.... WNS if that state of the art set up hadn't come into existence alone!!! That's TEN POINT EIGHT BILLION $$$ we coulda had to right ecological wrongs. OK... rant over. Seriously.... so far.... I haven't run into any sites that are down that I actually use regularly other than the USDA plants database and like I said.... I can get around using that site entirely if I just walk upstairs and hit the books.

Pretty Boy Floyd musta been getting vibes we were dissing him by straying off topic soooo.... he did something to get us back on track... I'm out there walking the dogs and I see him trying to hump Arthur. Poor Pretty Boy Floyd.... he won't have any chances of offspring if he keeps that up and poor Arthur for not being developed enough to stand out as a cockerel instead of a pullet.... he just didn't quite know what to do when PBF started making ga ga eyes and strutting his stuff around him!!!

Ahh...so that is why you call him "pretty boy". I think I'm offended, but I can't be sure.
