Someone gave this to my mom and she has no idea what it is. The blooms remind me of an Amaryllis but not the foliage. It almost looks like a mutant corn stalk that is short. LOL.

The blooms look like crinum. I don't know which one.

Thanks! She had this for three years and it bloomed right when she was about to trash it. The closest thing I found is Crinum 'Lorraine Clark.'

It might be this one, it's a popular one: Crinum (Crinum 'Ellen Bosanquet')

Thanks. I think it looks close to that one too. At least we know it is a Crinum. My mom cracks me up. She said a few weeks ago that she was going to dig up that ugly plant her friend gave her and trash it. Now she loves it! Rolling on the floor laughing
