Curious beautiful oxbloods

I didn't plant them and they seem to bloom a little later than others I’ve noticed around town. I’m always especially curious about my hereditary plants: who chose to put them in that stark location and when?

Ooh, you have a lovely collection of oxblood lilies. Or maybe we should all be calling them hurricane lilies, their other name.

Thanks, Pam!

I really do think they're even prettier because of their singular, unexpected location. And thanks--I didn't know they were also known as hurricane lilies!
