Well, that worked! Here is another taken the same day, showing a group 
of Notholirion thomsonianum (all the same clone) flowering in light 
shade. The mess of long leaves flat on the ground belongs to them, and 
is why this is not perhaps a plant for the fastidious gardener. Like 
Cardiocrinum, Notholirion is monocarpic; the bulb that produces the 
scape dies, leaving dozens of offsets of a sequence of ages. That's why 
you can have all the Notholirion you want from the BX, but you have to 
wait a while for flowering. Note that the shortest one in the photo is 
fasciated: the stem is flattened and broad, and carries more flowers, 
more closely spaced than normal. This occurs occasionally here.
