Just took this picture. Blooms are pretty but also are very short lived. Here in Beaumont, TX they last from about 8:00am to 2:00pm. A plant will bloom with about 6 flowers a week for 6 or 7 weeks. The bloom is a bit larger in diameter than a quarter.

I have never heard of a Pine Wood Lily. It's beautiful.

In the Hortiplex database of garden web, you can locate several other pictures of this plant under it's Latin name: Alophia drummondii
A popular book on Texas Flowers refers to it as Nemastylis purpurea. I believe this is more in line with the variety that I have.

I goofed up...again. This should have been posted in the Iris forum. It is called "pine wood lily", but it is actually an Iris.

Neverless it's beautiful! I'm glad you goofed. ;-)
