Anonymous beauty


Unknown, beautiful plant

We found this plant in a pot under a bush when we moved in 3 years ago. Rebecca planted it in the bed around the magnolia tree, and 3 years later it has spread and puts out these stunning 12" blooms every February. We have no idea what it is - but would love to find out, if anyone recognizes it.

could it be a bird of paradise variety? OR A variety of a lily? It's hard to tell in the photo...but that's my guess. Lori

So - it looks like it's a Bromeliad - but we have no idea what kind...
