Looks like Crocosmia, to me. Emily McKenzie, perhaps

Have a look at this thread. Try not to be disappointed when you realize this is what you've got...

Oh I like them just fine...I found it amusing the thread posted below that one. I rather prefer the orange lillies to stay roadside, but I have tons of smaller day lillies at home.. 8)

They're that croco whatever thing.

Quietly Awesome is right, that's [url=https://www.floridata.com/ref/C/croc_xcr.cfm]crocosmia[/url]. I have some just like it growing just outside my back door.
