Doryanthes excelsa

The Gymea Lily flower appears on the end of a spear that can be up to 6M (20feet) tall.

This plant is found on the north bank of the Parramatta River in the centre of Parramatta, and thankfully throughout its long flowering it was not damaged, but rather a kind local had used some rag to bind it carefully and tie it to the railing of the pedestrian bridge to protect the spike from wind damage.

...a spear that can be up to 6M (20feet) tall.

...only in Australia and Texas! ;-)

Dear Ian,

One of the white painted churches of Texas could be enhanced by a planting of Gymea lilies beside it, and it would enhance the lilies too.
