It reminded me of my Lily (Lilium longiflorum) but the leaves on your plants look narrower.

Look at Lilium longiflorum aka Formosa Lily/St Joseph's Lily/Trumpet Lily and a bunch of other common names.

I love the photo, especially the background. What a view! Thumbs up

The foliage is typical of L. formosanum with narrow leaves that are significantly longer at the bottom of the stem and tapering to much shorter towards the top. The shape of the buds certainly look more L. longiflorum-ish (kind of poofing out in the middle) but I don't think L. longiflorum leaves are that narrow.

L. longiflorum and L. formosanum are two different species. L. formosanum actually grows like a weed, easily reseeding in some places (e.g.,Taiwan).

You may find names for this lily that involve "longiflorum", "philippinense" and possibly others but they are synonyms.

They make beautiful long seed pods with lots and lots of seeds. So I try to collect mine before they spread, mine are in the shade and get over five feet tall and have to be staked for support.

For comparison check out these with narrower leaves:

Lily (Lilium formosanum var. formosanum)
Lily (Lilium formosanum 'Snow Queen')
