This is a noid with which I started with one bulb and of which I now have managed to spread many throughout the garden. It is a small lily - I think - and very pretty and cheery. Anyone know what it is?

Gorgeous! And you've piqued my curiosity! I've never seen those before, but they appear to be in the Amaryllis family. Is there foliage present when they bloom? Can't tell if those leaves in the background belong to it or something else (look like daylily leaves?). A foliage pic may help.

Thank you for your interest. I am very grateful. Smiling

Cameron, the leaves appear different. These are them.

Neal, the leaves do not die back in winter and are with the flowers.

The leaves are 9.5' X 0.7'; the scapes 13'; and the flowers1.5' long.

This is a bulb. I found it in an old garden on the island where a house used to be. Any idea what it could be?

I think Cameron is right, looks like Freesia laxa to me.

Thank you. Thank You! Freesia laxa definitely looks like it.

Ann, I have planted that bulb and I will go and get some more and give them a home too.
