Mysterious white flower from plant rescued from L.H. Bailey Conservatory. Thought it might be an agapanthus until it threw a stalk of these flowers.

  1. All of the scans are pretty, but I love how the thalictrum seem like little ghost flowers, quietly emerging from the shadows somehow… seems pretty apt, in terms of what they did in my garden the only year I got them to grow!

    That exotic white flower is some sort of hymenocallis, I think. I’ve looked at growing those before, along with the lycoris and such… but haven’t yet gotten up the nerve to try them. (Truth be told, I’m a pretty lazy gardener and would probably forget to dig them all up… like I do with cannas.)

  2. i think I favor the nasurtiums or the thalictrum, which to me looks like purple stars in a night sky. I agree with Kim on the Hymenocallis ID.

  3. The scans make an interesting GBBD display. It adds a little photographic excitement, eerie even, with the dark studio like background.
