Need Help Identify Lily Species

Posted by JArrowood none (My Page) on

My mother gave me these lilies three years ago, and I'd love to know what species they are. I figured someone would need to see the bloom to make an accurate identification, but haven't been able to get them to bloom.

I broke apart the root ball last year and replanted in a larger container. If I recall correctly, they didn't have bulbs, rather stringy roots. I placed them under a west-facing window in my bathroom. They are finally blooming, and I am so happy! Maybe now someone will be able to tell me what type of lily they are. Any thoughts?

I'm sure these are not any kind of lily.....they look very much like some type of iris (maybe a species iris) to me. PL

I don't know a lot about them but it looks similar to a butterfly iris.
