Just trying to attach a photo of the bloom I had this summer-end.
Thanx Kay, that was interesting.
Some people call it the "May Flower" since this usually blooms at the beginning of May or just a few days either side.

Since you linked to this ancient (! LOL) post, I thought I'd bump it. I've never seen that plant before. Do you still have it?
I love that flower, would look lovely in an arrangement with arum leaves.
Do you know if it gets exported for the cut flower industry.?
How I wonder this had escaped your attention all these years!! This is one of my early pictures I took with my film camera just to be posted up here on DG when I was raw and uploading was quite a new facility as well. Scanners had just arrived too and that made it possible for me to do that.
That Football lily always arrives.. it is doing so early due to unseasonal rains. Usually it was up by April end or first week of May [as such, they also call it as May Flower here]. The bulbs are still there and it did come in March this year as it rained quite unusually then. I think I took a couple of pix this time. Here is one.
I love digging old posts.. thanks for raking it up for me!
Well, I love it and it's color, think I'll add it to my wish list!
Thanks for linking the plant up here on DG, gardenwife.
In zone 9b, you will do well to have a few in your garden, even though the grand show lasts just for a week. Easy to grow and look after.
