I have no idea. But it sure is pretty. Is that a day lily? Hard to tell without foliage.

Definitely Mexican Shellflower...I used to grow them, both yellow and orange ones. Mine didn't make it through a really cold winter and I never got more.

dodge my leaves are the same as yours, you can see em in the botton middle of my pic,[ pay no attation to the weeds! lol ]
i container grow them cause like alan says a hard winter can kill em off easy, or for my zone a regular winter can kill em easy, you might wanna dig em up for winter storage.
