'Butterfly Lily' Somehow they got pollinated (I never saw any kind of insect collecting the pollen and drinking the nectar) and are now making pretty red seeds. I'm collecting a few to see if they sprout and how long the plant would take to send forth blooms in the late Spring--early Summer.
If they do, I will mail seeds (next year) to anyone who wants them.

Yes Peter, it is. The plant is native to India and is relative to culinary Ginger. In fact, some folks refer to it as Ginger Lily. The roots are very similar. It can be grown just about anywhere the Winters are mild....where the ground doesn't freeze. They die back when the days become shorter and come back in the Spring where I live.

Thanks for the detailed information Larry (I should not ask you to send some seeds to Holland!).

Fragile beauty, Larry......I think it would turn its toes up and die when it got to the airport, never mind my garden!

Yes Larry looking at the shot my first impression was that perhaps I had seen some of this kind,however,your reply to Peter has confirmed me.

Barbara, everyone knows all the English folk are great gardeners. I'll put you on my list for seeds. I'll include seeds for the Meyer Lemon. It's time you clean out the green house anyway.

It's very beautiful but a little too delicate for the North of England

Jean, I'm thinking the North of England might be a good place to live if it weren't for the weather. :-)
