Does anyone know what this plant is?

Hi.  This is in my garden, but I have no idea what it is.  It's a large grass plant with approx 3' to 4' stalks growing from it.  Any help would be appreciated!

    IT LOOKS VERY MUCH LIKE A TALLER VERSION OF THE THING ON THE RIGHT, A DAY LILY.

    Thank you for your response!  I have 8 day lily's in my garden that are small and whose stalks are all relatively short, and then I have 7 of these larger ones whose stalks are HUGE.  Are they just growing at different rates or could it be that they are different species?

    I expect they are a different variety of day lily - flowering a bit later by the look of it, maybe with different coloured flowers.

    Some are early and some are middle and some late flowerers.  I had a dozen different hemerocallis in my last garden with flowering times from May to October frosts.  The early, yellow ones had the shortest flowering period but a lovely perfume.
