    I think it was last year I posted photos of my 2 Gymea Lilies as they grew from little tots to giants a couple of metres high, not knowing what they were. Only one has appeared this year. Fascinating plant. Hopefully you can make it out. Centre stage.:) rps20171115_045135.jpg

    Oh, it's beautiful. I had to google it as I had never heard of this beauty .. Thank you for sharing.

    Wow, you're going to have a very good show a few years down the road when you have about 5 to 10 spikes.. Lovely!

    Hope you don't mind my photos which I googled

    Mine is more like your second photo alp but conditions here aren't really suitable for it to flourish so it does its' best but it's a bit of a "poor cousin" really:(

    Could we have a close up of your beauty please? I feel like I have usurped your host role. But I have never seen such a beautiful plant here in this country. I so want to copy and paste the columnar beauties, but it's your thread .. I need to behave!
