we have two of these plants and both were here when we bought our house. they’ve dont nothing except grow. we have been unable to identify them.

i’ve seen a similar plant at a neighbour’s and it is a Gymea Lily. it has a tall stem in the middle with many bright red flowers at the top of the stem that cover about 1 foot of the top of the stem.

are you able to identify our plant please? thank you.

Hi Jamie, It is probably a Gymea Lily (Doryanthes excelsa), but without a flower I can’t be sure. Don
