Please help me with plant id

swjonthebay(8b Alabama)July 22, 2013

I noticed this plant growing/blooming on our bulkhead yesterday. The plant itself is about 10-12"tall and doesn't look like anything I've ever planted. I have searched Alabama wildflower pictures today and so far have had no luck in seeing anything like it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like crocosmia from here. MIne are blooming right now as well. Hope this helps....

Yes, Nelson, that does help and I thank you.

I had assumed it was a wildflower because I'd been seeing something very similar in a ditch near my place of work. But now it looks like maybe those are something that escaped a garden :)

This little plant seems to be very happy in what is really no more than sand over rocks.
