Could it be some sort of hardy orchid?
SOLVED: ANother mystery from my friend's garden
It looks like a crinum to me. What kind, can't tell without a closer straight on shot of the bloom.
A crinum? Well, I am not aware of any that are so small. This bloom is only about an 1 1/2". I was unable to get a straight on shot as it was in the middle of a heavily planted bed; had to use the zoom to get that picture. It is hard to tell but the flowers/buds are arranged along the stem not at the tip like on my various crinums.
very cool! my first thought was crinum but looking closely I can see what you mean about the blooms being arranged along the stem.
is this a bed you can get babies from???????????
I could not find one that matched in PF but could it be a species of Ornithogalum or something closely related?
might be a good guess....they sure are pretty! Any scent?
Couldn't get close enough to sniff. The flowers are arranged a lot like some of the ornithogalums but the flowers sure are different.
Think I'll cross post on bulbs and or tropicals.
I went back last week and looked at it again. The flowers are gone and are you all ready for this? It is a common green airplane plant. Well, maybe not so common as the flowers were pretty showy when it was in full bloom. We were all stunned to see what it was.
by airplane plant are you talking the common spider plant ? (not spider lily)
Here in S. GA I've never heard any plant referred to as "airplane plant"
