Last Spring I noticed three separate plants with green spike like leaves growing around the farmhouse. I researched them in books and on the internet and thought they were Crinum Lillies, which is an old fashioned Southern pass along plant. But... everybody else's Crinum Lillies bloomed several weeks ago. I had given up on these plants, thinking they were just some kind of green plant that didn't bloom.
Well a few days ago I noticed these buds forming!
And then this progression...
More research is in order to know exactly what the name of these lillies are, but for now I am calling them my "candy stripe lillies"
*** Edited to say that these are Crinum Lillies after all. HERE IS A LINK. What do you think? Are they the same?
