It is an Asiatic lily. More than one bloom per stem and the last longer than a day. :)
I planted a few of these in my garden about 3 years ago. They've never bloomed, because the Japanese beetles always ate too much of the young plants, but this year I finally got them to survive the beetles. The plants have actually grown to 3 feet now, I think they'll bloom! :fl

Many of the spring flowers have faded now I'm back to enjoying some foliage again. :)

Clipped the pulmonaria, and am really hoping I can get it back into flower...

The persian cornflowers have begun to bloom, the bees and insects are crazy for them..

We also have a Jackmanii Clematis.

It has done well here. What was in this location before the clematis?

This rose. It is about a week past its 2021 prime but not doing too bad for a rose that is over 25 years old.

The shadow is from a tree and is only shading the rose in the very early hour of the day. Later, it’s full sun for the rose! The clematis only has full sun during this early morning hour, then, it catches more sun for an hour or 2 in the late afternoon.

That clematis location was too, too shady for the rose, which was planted there before we bought this house. The rose was a large bush but didn’t bloom during our first year here. We bought the house during late fall but I went back and looked at the photos that the realtor took and - it wasn’t blooming that summer! Too shady.

I moved it to the sunny location in 1997.
