It's one of the Asiatic Lilies, not sure which variety. There's a similar example here http://www.overthegardengate.net/garden/archives/template.asp?LinkID=596 though I think yours is more orange than the bronze one pictured. Its a bulb, so unless the squirrel has dug it up, it should flower again next year.

  • I have it in a big pot with my money tree, they've really dug in there and I can't tell if their still there. But I'll cross my fingers. Lol thanks for the info!

  • They're pretty large bulbs, easily twice the size of, say, a daffodil bulb

  • @Hush564...just an aside. All lilies are fatally poisonous to cats. And for some weird reason cats are attracted to munching on them. No problem if you've got indoor cats (thank you in advance) but if out of door kitties, if your cat comes home sick you can expect that they've either eaten mouse bait or lilies. I recently this past decade learned this and I am a huge cat person as well as a lily lover...out of door cats become the neighborhood cats, grrrrr. Looks like an asiatic lily to mesef too.

    And don't worry about the squirrels! The squirrels are planting acorns, peanuts an other nuts. Or they are digging up their already planted treasures. They wouldn't bother your bulbs as long as they were well fed. Peanut plants are beautiful...

Looks like a Siberian Lily to me (Lilium pensylvanicum) Dave's Garden
