Bruce, that flower looks somewhat like a "spider lily" that my Grandmother used to grow in New Orleans. It is beautiful, but not exactly the same, though...Does it have any fragrance? Betty :-)
It is beautiful . a Peruvian daffodil.would be my best guess .. Gin
I have those and yes they are the spider lilies. Very pretty and smell like heaven! Only problem here is that they get monster huge...and will take over quickly.
I had peruvian daffs so I don't think that's your flower.
I found this one though.
"Common name: Long Flowered Spider Lily
Botanical name: Pancratium longiflorum Family: Amaryllidaceae (Nargis family )
Synonyms: Pancratium cambayense".Here's the link:Pancratium longiflorum - Long Flowered Spider Lily
Check it out, maybe that's your plant!
Happy 4th of July!!
EDIT: well, I think there's a lot of plants that look alike! hehe
seems like the peruvian daff' have some variations in their appearance!
so I think I was wrong, it is a Peruvian Daffodil.
Pacific Bulb Society | Ismene Hybrids
I have one of those. It is commonly called Peruvian Daffodil. It is also known as Ismene. I love them!
that was my guess Hymenocallis narcissiflora, I thought it could be similar to Pancratium maritimum but it is more rare. Hymenocallys aka Peruvian daffodil. the Pancratium has no green just white flowers
