Good Morning,
I've posted a picture of a flower which I dont know the species, nor even if it is common to North countries.
Would you please, try to idenfy it?




Google gloriosa lily and see what you think,not sure what stage of flowering yours is at.

More likely a member of the Acanthaceae--maybe a Ruellia coccinea, or close kin? Or, do those leaves belong to those flowers? If not, the blooms might be a Canna coming up through a Justicia, or something similar.

Good Morning Dgw,
Thanks for your reply. The gloriosa lily you suggested is way more beautiful. This plant is more common.

Hello Tugbrthil,
It seems to be some kind of canna indica or canna musafolia. Thanks for your reply.
