Lily (maybe)

I'm pretty sure this is a lily, but that color! I don't even know how to describe it. How about blushing peach or something along those lines?

Anyway, if someone recognizes this little beauty, please tell us more. It's such a lovely flower, it deserves to be more well known.

Looks like a daylily, I bet there are thousands of hybrids out there.

The flowers are edible, if you can stand to eat such pretty things. Very hardy plants. That is a beautiful bloom!
