My late mother gave me the bulbs when i moved out of the family home. There were peach and pink and one more colour that I can't remember, but sofar only the pink ones grow in my garden. I'm sure they're liliums but can someone help identify them, please? Thanks

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

If that is one of its' leaves to the right, compare to Crinum.

I think Paul got it right... Hippeastrum (amaryllis) reticulatum. They've got that distinctive stripe down the center of the leaves.

Thank You! everyone for helping. But it seems like maybe i have a hybrid 😉. This has been a good year for my plant. It bloomed in April and then again in July. And i got flowers this time 😘. Last time, i only had three (see new image).

The foliage looks much more like Crinum than Amaryllis (Hippeastrum).

Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) foliage is tidy, and mostly upright.


The leaves emerge from the bulb facing in 1 direction, flat against each other.


Crinum foliage is MUCH bigger, in both width and length, and usually gets so long and heavy that most of the leaves become bent:


The leaves emerge from the bulb in an array:


With only partial leaves showing in the above pics, it's hard to get a sense of the appearance of the whole plant.
