This Lily blooms for the first time in my roof garden – I brought it in last October from Uttaranchal – Mayabati Ashrama.
Please provide it’s id and local name, if any.

Yes Hemerocallis fulva

this is Day lily… usually its orange, but may be yellow…
its an import into USA but has naturalized and we see it along road edges and ditches and any green along the parkways… provides color where there may be none, but some people find it irksome and have classified it as weedy…
IF YOU PLANT  it in your garden, first few years make sure rabbits or slugs don’t get it, it will thrive and produce several generations of bulbs…. 

Day lily is common name for different species Hemerocallis
This one is commonly known as Orange day lily, tawny day lily or fulvous day lily: Native of Temperate and Tropical Asia

More common in California  are yellow day lilies Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus (syn: H. flava) known also as lemon day lily and lemon-lily and H. minor (H. flava var. minor) known as dwarf day lily or grass-leaf day lily 
I had uploaded both from California, initially confused as single species…

Taglilie/ day lilies from my garden in Ritterhude 130611NB1: Fotos taken today. Wonder if it is _Hemerocallis fulva_ L.

Of course it is Day Lily. I have few plants in my house but some time back, but it was not H.falwa. I lost them all. H. falwa is much more attractive.

Orange Lilies seen in a garden in the first week of July, 2017.

Leaves do not match with Day Lilies.

day lilly

google images match your 

Thanks for the id. The leaves look closer to Rain Lilies to me.

rain lily petals if i remember are smaller, pointier and single layer. rain lily leaves are much narrower and shorter, different from your pic. also always take at least one side view

Thanks, …, To me also appears close to images of Hemerocallis fulva (L.) L. on google search. May be different cultivars.
