Thank You!

That bright yellow is a really good color. You don't normally see Alstroemeria that vividly yellow. Lovey dubby

Thank you very much to both!
No wonder I could not find a lot of info about a South American native species as this plant is growing at my house in the North of Great Britain!! Lol
Although I have heard that the previous owner was a very keen gardener.
Thank You!

You can save the seeds. If you do not bag the seed heads the seeds will "explode" and plant themselves.

Paul when I first looked at the flowers (really needed close-ups) I also wondered about Erysimum. But the seedpods are correct for Alstremeria, not Erysimum.
Check out this wonderful website. Both genera are represented in photos.

Yeah, the Peruvian Lily seemed to match quite well especially on the looks of the seed pods.

I've got another few identifications I need, should I make a new thread?

I'm looking at these: (sorry I have absolutely 0 knowledge in Flowers)

Welcome! Blacktalos!

1) Garden Phlox?
2) Agapanthus

I also have a herb that looks a lot like Mint or Sage, but the flowers smell a lot like lavender:

My wife says it might be Catmint?

I agree Phlox paniculata, Agapanthus and catmint (Nepeta). Yes, ideally you should start a new thread for each individual plant.

Thanks!
I would not be able to confirm Garden Phlox, but if each flower produces Exactly 3 seeds, that would be it?

Ah, right, I'll make a Thread per plant to keep it tidy, and mark this one as resolved now.
Thanks a lot!
And such quick replies too, I'm very grateful! Thank You!
