Identify a flower?

Christine Murtagh asked 12 years ago

I would love if you can help to name this plant, it’s been in the family for generations growing in a tub. We devide and share out the bulbs every couple of years but have no name for it. It produces these beautiful flowers in August/September and needs little attention.

This is the Scarborough lily, Cyrtanthus elatus, and it used to be called vallota. Your specimens are very good as they do not usually flower as well as that.
