Found this against house wall.
Appears as if it is growing from some sort of bulb?
Can anyone ID this for me?
Zone 10a, SW Florida.
Thanks

We have a few FL members that might be able to help you more. This looks familiar but, for the life of me, I can't remember what it is.

Welcome to ATP, Elizabeth.

You might try comparing your plant to Crinum Lily. It looks similar to me, and it seems to be a popular plant in the deep south. Smiling

Eulophia graminea is my guess, an invasive orchid in Florida.

It does sorta resemble Eulophia graminea which is a Florida Category II non-native invasive: http://florida.plantatlas.usf.edu/Plant.aspx?id=4276

Thumbs up Florida Gals.. Think you've got it nailed. Of course it would be an non native invasive and not something like the "ghost orchid".
Thanks to all the rest for the kind replies from last night and this morning. This sound like a 'wonderful ' group that I look forward towards playing in the 'dirt'.
Much appreciations for the warm and interesting "Welcome"

Welcome to ATP Elizabeth! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! I am now in Lake City but lived for the majority of my life in Palm Beach & Martin counties.
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.
