One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Lilium longiflorum, we see them more often in pots around Easter, but as long as they stay virus-free they're great garden plants
Somebody sited this plant wonderfully near the road in the Asian Collections. The sun lights it up all day and the shady background sets it off all day. It's great when plants can be made the center of attention like this but in any garden you can only create that situation a few times.
