Hello everyone,

I am new to posting on GardenWeb. I hope that I am posting in the correct spot.

Today I was visiting a friend and I saw this flower that I have never seen here in S.E. Louisiana. She said she doesn't know where it came from, that a bird must of dropped the seeds. I want that bird to visit me, LOL.

Here is a PIC of the actual flower (a bit limp, has been in a cup of water for a few hours). I hope that someone can Identify it.

Great to be here, Thanks in advance : )

That might be a milk and wine lily (flowers closed or drenched with rain) or crinum. Do a search for milk and wine lily pods (images). That's what it looks like to me.

Thank you Laurie for responding.

I Googled your suggestions and it doesn't look nothing like them. Today I took pictures of the piece (foliage) that I planted yesterday.

The flowers are still in a mardi gras cup of water and are no bigger than 2 inches each. I will also include another angle of the flowers.

I will be posting the new PICS as soon as I receive the email that I sent from my cell phone. Always takes forever, LOL. I may do it in the morning if I don't get them soon.

Thanks again,
Zuly : )

I'm pretty sure this is alstromeria. I have this and it looks to be the same.

It is a Parrot Lily (Alstroemeria psittacina)
