Shapes And Texture

You may have gathered from the cop-out nature of the post title that I have absolutely no idea what this plant is called, but it’s interesting and I liked it and so I took some photos:

      Thanks Camilla…..well that’s two people who have suggested that, so I think you could be right 😊

    Lovely macros.

    Definitely a lily. I thought Flamingo lilies were red? But maybe they come in white too. The third photo has the shape of an Arum Lily, but not the same centre. I usually take a guess and then go through Google images. Even if it is not either Flamingo or Arum, there should be a photo somewhere.

      Thanks Vicki, I did look at images of Lilies on the internet, but couldn’t find anything that matched.

    Mark, I just came across a photo of Skunk Cabbage (Lysichiton) in my plant encyclopaedia. I think this is your flower’s name. Not a lily at all. Let me know what you think. Part of it is the indentations on the petals that confirm it.

      I think you’re right, in fact a friend on FB, who has one in her garden, is absolutely positive that it is. What a horrible name for something so beautiful 😊
