sepia scenes #14

08 Jul

Any botanist or simply flower lover/enthusiasts out there who could tell me what this flower is?  We have this for years now. Too long that I can’t remember if I even knew the name.  I believe this comes from a bulb, because it lays dormant for part of the year and then wakes up to a stalk that becomes this beautiful bloom. 

Sepia Scenes is hosted by Teach Mary.  Come join us here.

    I don’t know what the flower is, but the blossom makes a beautiful sepia picture.

    What a delightful photo, those stamens look like sparkling jewels. I hope someone can identify your photo.

    Beautiful sepia shot!
    I agree with Denise – these stamens really look like sparkling jewels! 🙂

    Beautiful flowers, like stars they seem to me.
    I wonder, can it be the flowers of a butterfly bush.
    I have a similar in the garden. It will not blossom until late August though.

    I could not tell you what this really is – by name. But the style and textural differences make us look and look. We don’t know for sure, but it is a natural work of art!

    Gee, ewok, I wish I knew. It is certainly beautiful! In sepia, very beautiful! 🙂

    Wow. When you find out, let us know. What color is it? Bring the photo to a nursery, if you are able. I bet they will be able to identify it.

    This is an amazing flower. Seems to be a hardy plant if you’ve had it for years.

    If you have an Encyclopedia of Plants and Flowers or you can even google it (Flowers or Bulb) you might find its name. It’s really beautiful!

    I’m terrible with names of flowers.
    No matter what nane it has, it doesn’t matter.
    It’s beautiful!!

    what a unique plant, I would love to see it in color, but sepia is beautiful as well.

    I knew, I saw this flower post somewhere. Tammy of the Spririthelpers posted this flower in her blog:
    It is called bear grass. Please check out her site. Thanks.

    I really thought this might not be real. It is so perfect, and so shiny. I think I need to see a real one in person. SO intriguing.
