Hemerocallis or day lily. Dont know which one, there are hundreds of cultivars.

Geranium Maderense

It is tender up here. I bought a seedling in penzance, and I was told to put it in a big pot, and feed it. It flowered the second year.

Try feeding it with a high potash fertiliser like tomato food.

Spectacular in flower, especially when backlit with a setting sun.

 Of course , being monocarpic, they then die, so don't forget to save the seed.

Common or not, I was pleased with it.

Nut, do you have a special way of attracting moths for a moth count?

 I read about old socks dipped in a mixture of red wine and sugar but it seemed a waste of red wine.

I have a good spread of suitable wildflowers/weeds for them, Edd. I gather the emerald moth likes oaks, but it was resting on the canna.(half way between two oaks.)

The orange tips like the honesty and garlic mustard.  Something must like the jack by the hedge. peacocks and commas like nettles.  I find lots of things like Verbena bonariensis and the buddlejas even if they are not native. I've usually got something in flower for them to feed on, even if its not a native.
