Received this at our local swap, no name but it's beautiful and comes back every year.
I forgot to include a size reference in the photos; foliage is appx. 6-8 inches tall, flower spike up to 2 feet tall.
Entire plant: Thumb of 2014-05-23/greene/6c636f

Okay, now I feel bad. I have had this plant for 3 years and couldn't figure it out.
You got the answer in less than 11 minutes. Good for you! Thank You!

Very, very drought tolerant too green & the bees just go ga-ga for it.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

If you plant that in the ground, it makes nice big clumps!

I have it in the ground @Calif_Sue, thanks. Used a potted one (which was on its way to the local swap from whence it came) for the photo. This plant is completely carefree. The foliage glows in the sunlight. I love it; just got tired of calling it 'Harvey, Earl of Orange', for lack of a proper name. But it will take me a while to warm up to the real name...
Bulbine frutescens...need a mnemonic to remember this one. Whistling
"bul-BYE-nee froo-TESS-enz"...

sheesh, who names these plants? Rolling on the floor laughing
