This thing is a pain to photograph. The flowers always face west or southwest so my background choices are the garden shed siding or the dirt road going up the hill. For this image, I played around with some of the B&W “nostalgia” profiles and found a high-contrast one that blacked out the siding.

Here’s the original color image:


I would like to move this plant, but I haven’t been able to identify it so I don’t know where it would do well or what time of year is best for transplanting. If anyone can ID it for me, I’d really appreciate it! It grows in a large clump with long (1 1/2 foot) skinny and pointy leaves growing from the base. In late spring, it sends up a single stalk with several buds.

      Thank you! It was the easiest way to get rid of the garden shed siding. And the flowers were already white, so no loss there…
