Update: So as a wise reader pointed out, this is actually most likely tulbaghia violacea. Society garlic or pink agapanthus is its common name. It’s in the onion family and thought to be native to Africa. Just goes to show how easy it can be to misidentify plants.
I will still leave up the info about the Siberian lily…
Siberian lily and lavender mountain Lily are both common names of a beautiful delicate flower that looks quite similar to society garlic. It is native to Central and Southwest Asia.
I’m so glad people have come up with common names for flowers because the “real” names can be tongue twisters for some of us.
As with most of the flower photos I take, I saw these when I was walking around downtown Orlando one day. There’s so many beautiful flowers here everywhere! Having year round greenery is one of my very favorite things about Florida. I used to get seasonal depression up north in the winter because the cold and snow would stick around for so long! Yikes! I certainly don’t have that problem here in Florida. I advise people DO NOT move here unless you really love warm/hot weather… you will be miserable… I love it though!
I find it amazing how when you shift your camera it can shift the light around and thus photos taken within minutes of each other can look quite different. I guess that’s just one of the many wonders of photography.
Have a great day!
