|I RECENTLY BOUGHT A PLANT AND WAS TOLD IT WAS A PINK CORN PLANT BUT CAN'T FIND ANYTHING LISTED UNDER THAT NAME EXCEPT CORN. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND INFO ON IT, THE PLANT AND BLOOM ARE BEAUTIFUL. I HAVE ATTACHED A PICTURE OF IT.|
THE SECOND PICTURE IS WHAT I THOUGHT WAS AN AMARILLAS BUT IT HAS NEVER HAD A BLOOM THAT LOOKS THE WAY IT DID THIS YEAR. I WONDER WHAT IT IS NOW.

|The first one I believe is called Brazilian Plume and the second is a type of Spider Lily, Hymenocallis genus.|

The Hymenocallis are also known as Peruvian daffodils. Again, they're pretty cold sensitive so if you get cold winters, you'd best plan to dig them up and bring them indoors.

I believe Peruvian Daffodils are genus Ismene. There are about 16 Hymenocallis native to the US and 1 exotic. Mostly southern states, but Hymenocallis occidentalis can be found as far north as southern Illinois and Indiana, I think around zones 6a or 6b.

|I have several of the Peruvian daffodils in large pots in my flower garden, zone 8b/9a California. They bloom reliably and are one of my favorites, such pretty flowers!|
