The Q&A Archives: What is this flower?

Question: I recently saw flowers in a vase that were striking. No one present knew what type of flower they were. The flowers grew on a stalk, similar to gladiolas. The flowers were tubular in a strong pink color with black stamens. If you have any idea what type of flower this may be, I would love to know. Apparently, the people present were asked this question repeatedly throughout the day. Thank you for your assistance.

Answer: That does sound striking, but I'm sorry, nothing comes to mind with the black stamens. I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
