Lily Identification Please?

I purchased this lily at a farmers market in Raleigh, NC a few years ago. It had no name tag. I just feel in love with the foliage on this lily. The man said it would bloom in a few years. I have never seen it bloom yet but it comes back every year along with my other lilies. I would love to get an ID on this plant. Anyone know what lily this is? I can't find it anywhere.

    Wow I don't know what it is, but it's beautiful! I love the spotted trunk. Let's get some experts in here. @360 Sod (Donna Dixson) and or @Douglas Hunt might be able to help you.

    You are right! Thank you! I just love this lily. Now I can read up more about it and see if I can get it to bloom :-)

    I've seen these voodoo lilies on "Pintrest", don't they grow big?

    Mine is still a small corm. About the size of a softball. I have seen them up to basket ball size! Plant has not gotten any bigger than three feet. Might be because I keep it in a pot. That way when it blooms I can get it away from the house :).

    This is indeed an Amorphophallus. I have three that were given to me by a friend a year ago and they are now about 3 feet tall.

    Do they grow well indoors in pots?

    I have one growing in my yard. I'm Zone 8 (Vancouver WA)and it has overwinter since I've had it for 20 years.
