Thanks, Bob, (at Love will Bring Us Together blog) for identifying this plant as Clivia–a subspecies of agapanthus.

For FOTD.

    Close – Clivia, same family as Agapanthus but different sub-family/species.

    As far as i know (to date – future events to be determined) there are only shades of blue and/or white agapanthus. Some quite dark blue admittedly, no orange (yet).

    That was easy! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

        I saw that page in my hunt for your flower!

        It’s (google images) getting complicated because searches for images will include images on webpages that may have the search words anywhere on the same page, not just relative to the flower’s name! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        Yours is definitely an orange clivia. a relative of but not the same as true agapanthus. See clivia and agapanthus under wikipedia for full details of both. ๐Ÿ™‚

            So i have found! Somewhat inconvenient, but what can we do?? I’ve just been checking one of my plant names and it seems even nursery’s can mis-name some of their plants for sale. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
