I thought they were tuberose but they are not...so what are they?
This is the first time these bloomed for me. Sorry, didn't catch if before she started fading.

I'd guess C. jagus also: Crinum (Crinum jagus)

Thanks, Lin & Janet. What a lovely surprise for me! I have the crinum 'Ellen B' blooming wonderfully and the C. americanum is just starting to bloom.

Betsy - that looks like a shorter variety of crinum. How tall is it?? I would like to grow some with shorter flowering stalks.

There's several forms of Crinum jagus..

I bought mine from Thailand several years ago, I keep it inside over winter but still waiting for flowers, I doubt it likes our climate but it's grown well. The leaves never die back completely.

I forgot about Marcelle's crinums - she is just up the road from me; I've been meaning to visit her crinum farm.
Dianne, just measured the leaves and they are between 12 - 16 inches. I have had these in a pot.
