Re: SallyAnn's lily

Sally Ann:
   It seems that your 'lily' is Crinum jagus, sometimes
known as the St. Christopher lily. I sent the photo and
your description off to Kevin Preuss, who is a bulb 
person in Tallahasee (sp.) and he came back with the
name straight away, mentioning that they had just 
finished flowering there.
   The International Bulb Society 
has a gallery of bulb photographs, the genus Crinum
among them. Here's a short URL to the Crinum lot:
(It takes a fair while to load.)
You can page down and see three examples of C. jagus;
yours looks like the best of the lot.
