I think it may be Nerine sp. possibly flexuosa ( Amaryllidaceae). A nice plant.

Thank you so much!

I knew it was in the Amaryllidaceae...just didn't remember what it was labeled as in the Botanical Building.

Oh WOW! This is a "must have" for the next growing season!
The foliage almost looks "daffodil style" but the blooms are stunning!
I love it! :-)

I just LOVE exotic looking blooms! My passion vine, that I grew from seed, bloomed for the first time this year and the "color show" that it put on was outstanding! I just pray that it survives the next few days.. The forecast is temperatures in the TEENS for two days.. I suspect that my gardens will look like a nuclear strike after this. :-(((((( All of my potted plants are inside, but I feel SO bad for the ones in the ground!

I'm so sorry to hear about your plants! I know our plants are like our children...we love them. I hope it warms up soon for you!
I've said in the some other comments that most of Europe and the U.S. has been experiencing horrible cold temps. The big arctic blast currently here in the U.S. has even gone as far south as the Florida keys...which is extremely rare. The Florida citrus crops may be possible's a very bad situation.

In Southern California we've been experiencing very warm to hot weather for more than a week...and it's suppose to conitnue. In San Diego we usually have very mild weather this time of the year, however, our weather has been a good 10 to 12 degrees above normal.

I have several blooming trees/plants I've posted over the last few weeks, months. This is the time of the year when many of the tropical trees/shrubs are in full bloom. I'll be posting even more tonight...check them out if you have time. : > )

Delonix1, this winter is the worst that I have seen since 1984 here in Central Texas. We had snow flurries in early December, which has never happened as far back as I can remember. I am thankful that I was able to save some of my oldest potted and hanging plants into the garage. I worry about my landscape plants though. My rose collection has done well so far, but they have never seen temperatures in the "teens" for multiple days.
Where is some "global warming" when you need it? Please send it this way! :-)

I do remember when it snowed in Houston in early December...the news said it was the first time snow was ever recorded so early. This is an especially bad situation when the cold weather comes earlier than normal.

I hope most of your plants in the ground will return when the weather warms!

This year is an El NiƱo year...however, it hasn't felt like it...usually for most of the U.S. the weather is warmer than normal and Southern California usually recieves a lot of rain. This hasn't been the pattern however. Although, we are hoping for rain to relieve our horrible drought soon!

This winter was also a great learning experience for me. I found out which plants are hearty and which are not. A few of the huge surprises after the freeze were my seed grown shasta daises, the clumping bamboo, and the dusty miller. They have all done great and I plan on more of them next spring! All of my roses have fared well, with only a little cosmetic damage. That was VERY surprising!
I have noticed that the plants that fared the best this winter were all growing in the most richly prepared organic flower beds and the ones growing in the raw unprepared native soil are struggling a bit. Interesting!

I do know that Shasta Daisies, some species of bamboo and Dusty Millers can be very hardy. What was the coldest temperature your garden experienced?

Were your richly prepared organic flower beds mulched heavily? I've read several inches of mulch will protect plant roots from freezing temps. : > )

The coldest temps were in the teens for 3 days in a row. 11 deg F being the lowest. Of course I use a lot of native tree trimmings for my mulch. Local tree service companies will give the shredded trimmings for free, so they do not have to haul it off, and it is the absolute BEST mulch that there is! Very good for the compost pile also!

Must of my mulch is a little thin around the "woody shrubs" and trees, because those types of plants benefit greatly from having their "root flair" fully exposed.
Especially trees! The most beneficial thing that you can do to a plant such as a "Crape-myrtle" or ANY tree is to plant it high in the ground where there is a very pronounced "root flair" that is exposed.
