it looks like an angel's trumpet, datura...though I never saw one with the stripes like that. Beautiful! Where do you live? In a place like Florida it is a perennial, but in colder climates you have to dig it up in the winter to take indoors.
Carmel, its not a datura Angel's Trumpet It kinda looks like the blooms. The foliage is a type of lily. I'm from So. GA and when they bloom its going to rain. But its not a rain lily. Very pretty!
Which plant are you talking about?
It's some type of lily.
It reminds me of a day lily. Are the blooms short lived....a day! I haven't seen a striped pink before...but I would agree it is some type of lily. Very pretty.
I found this in my garden encyclopedia and looked it u online. Is this it? http://www.diggingdog.com/pages2/plantpages.php/P-0544
Melissa, I dont think its the lily from the garden encyclopedia. good look a like! The foliage is different. It blooms in the fall also.
I agree with @Nancy Hand it looks like a Crinum latifolium
Cronin is correct.Milk and wine Lily,is it's nickname.I have many from husband's grandmother dug up in 's.back in late 70's
There were some in our backyard when we moved in and the nursery people here called it a Swamp Lily.
It looks like an amaryllis to me.
Looks like an amaryllis plant or something in that family.
It is a Lily!
That is definitely a crinum.
This is beautiful!! ...Douglas Hunt, would you know the hardiness zone of this plant? Thanks!!
HI this plant is a Crimmin Lily ,and often changes colour,mine started out a very deep pink and some of them are now white
my son grows them is St Louis in pots and they do great ,[sorry Crinum]
your plant looks exactly like this one!
These are all over the southern U. S. at every old home place. Never have I heard them called by any particular name. I have some that were given to me 30 years ago by an elderly lady which I refer to as my peppermint lily. I planted only one and now have dozens...absolutely beautiful when they bloom (the entire summer). You have peeked my curiosity. I WILL find out somehow. Edited note: I do believe it is Milk and Wine Lily after researching.
I agree with Douglas, it's a Crinum and should be very hardy in your area.
I agree with Pam,here in the south,it is called Milk and Wine-white(milk) with wine strips.
here in missouri, we call it a naked lady because it blooms after the foliage dies back. it's also called a suprise lilly. it has a lovely fragrance.
it is from the lily family
It's a Lily
It is a Crinum latifolium. A member of the Amaryllis family. So are Bare Naked Ladies but they have foliage that dies back during the summer & in the fall a bare stalk emerges with a cluster of pink flowers on top. Hence the "bare naked" part. I believe the Crinum is supposed to have medicinal properties.
In my area we call them "Resurrection Lilly " or naked lady Lilly. They have a wonderful smell. The leaves come up early and die down, then reappear later when it blooms in August. Hence the "Resurrection" name.
As stated before, Crinum latifolium. Here is some background info for you. http://www.onlineplantguide.com/Plant-Details/684/
In New Mexico we call them surprise lily also.
I think it is also called a "surprise lily" at least in the Midwest.
NOT Naked Lady or Surprise lily! This plant has a flower stalk coming up out of foliage & is blooming in the spring. Naked Lady (surprise lily) sends up a flower stalk out of bare dirt, in the fall, after all its foliage has died off. This is Crinum latifolium. Both are members of the Amaryllis family but are totally different plants.
They are not Naked Ladies. My neighbor has these and she calls them Angel Trumpet Lilies.
use to be called CEMETARY LILLIES, cause you could plant them at the graves of loved ones and they required no care to bloom pretty! they are part of the CRINUM family and your particular one is called MILK and WINE because of the color. I have several different ones because I am old and so are they. check out Jenks Crinum Farm for more.
we used to call them naked ladys
Not Naked Lady or sometimes called BELLA DONNA,,they have leaves, long and slender that die down turn brown,,,, the a few weeks later the bloom comes up.. BOTH are in the AMARYLLIS family,, its a Crinum lilies variety.
To me, they look like Regal Lilies :
Definitely Crinum Lilies.....ours are blooming right now. Beautiful.
