Flower bending after the day's rain. There is a second plant developing alongside.

Very nice! I love something different.

The flower should be upright, like a red hot poker shape. Maybe if it's sunny, Sunday it will improve it's appearance.

How unusual but I love it.

Homebird, Bananas! The plant was just desperate for a drink. The flower is upright after 20mm of rain overnight after about 4 weeks of nothing.
Thorney, Would that be Asphodeline taurica? That's the only one I know with white flowers.

You got me going there Siris. I looked through all pages of my pics to find nothing. Then a light bulb moment! I asked a question back in 2015 because I had no idea what it was. It was agreed it was Asphodelus but not smelling of onions as someone suggested. Almost like a white kniphofia to look at at first. Whether it's taurica or not I don't know but if you look in my questions you might know.

THORNEY. your photo looks like ASPHODELUS ALBA. If you look at my pics March 29 and April 2 2020, there are pics of mine opening, but if you missed them, here is a compilation.

Bought one of these at our NGS luncheon in February......just planted it.....doubt it will flower this year though!!

Dd, probably too late and too young to flower this year. The clump of leaves are interesting, hint of blue/green and look like huge pine needles.

Yes thatโ€™s what attracted me......and the 2.00 price tag......

Oh, that was good value, Dd.
