A good few years ago I planted a couple of Proiphys cunninghamii — – Brisbane or Moreton Bay Lillies. I bought them from a wonderful Australian plant nursery we used to have here just outside Lismore. Unfortunately the plant nursery is gone but my lilies are thriving. The horticulturalist who sold them to me said she only would sell them on condition I looked after them as they were quite rare.
I found a lovely little protected area near the steps to my front door in amongst some salvaged local rocks that I used to make the garden. They are right next to a Native Rhododendron & my Cairns lillies. Before I went on holidays the flower stems were beginning to emerge from the gorgeous green low lying leaves.
I arrived home to find there was the tail end of the most spectacular display of flowers I have ever had!
The flowers are finishing off now unfortunately but the flower heads are all forming the seeds.
I love the flowers they are beautiful & white with yellow stamen, like little bells.
I did find one flower stem just starting to emerge from the leaves just in time to give a lovely show for Christmas.
