Hi folks,

This is my first post on ATP. I'm a big fan of the ATP podcast and I have learned a ton reading the forums. I need some help identifying what I believe to be a lilly. These have been passed down in my family for at least three generations, and came from another family before that. My grandmother probably first received these in the 40's, and maintained them in clay pots until she passed in 2001. When I bought my first house in 2008 I was given two pots of these lillies. The only instuctions I've ever been given for these are to grow them in clay pots and to make sure they stay moist. In the winter they go under the house. I've always been told this is a lilly but I have yet to make a positive ID. If the answer is super obvious I apologize in advance, and I certainly appreciate any input. Thank you!

edit: classic rookie mistake..."lily"
