Can anyone identify this? It has pinky white attractive flowers in summer...

But I can't for the life of me remember what it is! A lily of some sort?

Just inherited it from DM's conservatory, so I guess it's tender.

I have a few lilies that look exactly like that right now but very different in summer as they flower differently.

Any of these look familiar?

My 'concern' (such as it is!) is that the foliage of lilies looks wrong; so I am going to look at some orchid-like things! I may also be barking up the wrong tree, there!

I may yet have to wait til it flowers!

The leaves look like agapanthus - should have flowered by now unless it wasn't happy for some reason. Some leaves are a bit yellow - perhaps needs splitting and re-potting and a bit of tlc.

No, not one of those! I have one, though the leaves are pretty similar! I'm going to have to wait for it to flower again, aren't I?!

Actually, if you blow the picture up, you can see the dead flower stems, the brown twiggy ones...

It's a hemerocalis, or Day Lily.

Ah ha, that looks familiar! Thanks!
