Same Flower, Very Different Place

More pictures have come from my mother, this time of a leopard or blackberry lily (Belamcanda chinensis) blooming in the Michigan front yard:

Coincidentally, the very same species is flowering in a few spots around the pool area of our building here in Kuala Lumpur:

So far the leopard lily is the only herbaceous perennial that I have encountered that appears to do more or less equally well in the rather different climates of Michigan and Malaysia.
