day lilies    

These were given to me by a coworker when I left my last job. She didn’t know what they were (she called them tiger lilies, but they look like daylilies to me.)

Nice farewell gift u got here! :)
Looks like a daylily because it is one.
this is a fancy multi petaled daylily. Variety name is ‘Kwanso’.

Not a proper tiger lily, although some people do call them tiger lilies anyway.
Proper tiger lilies are supposed to have spots in their centers, and petals that all curve dramatically backward, away from the center of the flower.
This planting by Xan shows a great example of an actual tiger lily-
