{Crinum Americanum - Swamp Lily}

Also in August and September we do have our Crinum Americanum or Swamp Lily blooming at their best.
Sorry for not having visited many blogs; had surgery on my left hand Friday and tomorrow I will get discharged from the hospital.
During the rainy week of September, husband Pieter captured this photo on the 24th.
Earlier, on August 9, I have taken this photo when they bloomed for the first time.
Very healthy leaves and lots of flowers but when it rains it is hard to enjoy them...
Again on September 24th.
They also produce lots of thick seeds!

Did any of you know this flower?

  2. Oh, 'Swamp Lily' another rare flower from you; very different and pretty♡♡♡ Amazing big (maybe) and thick seeds. I DO hope your fever settled perfectly and pain will go away immediately, my dear friend!
    Please Take Care and try not push yourself too much after coming home. Thinking about you and sending healing wishes.
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

      Indeed this Crinum Americanum is a lovely plant that blooms very lovely!
      Pain has not been an issue, a couple of hours after surgery; I am ready to go home! They just gave me another antibiotic via IV and mow I'm disconnected and ready to eat my breakfast!
      Thank you so much and hope they will discharge me in the afternoon or evening!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      No this Crinum Americanum is native to our area and will not grow in Germany.
      Let's hope that for this new week I soon will be home again!

      Well I guess for little or no reason my body seems to attack itself; this time my entire hand got swollen... Surgically they did open up my index finger as the swelling started there, to take some cultures. The result came back after two days with nothing growing in them; of course it left the medical staff puzzled, like in 2010 when I got paralyzed because of a rare autoimmune disease. Guess it happened again but I'm full of antibiotics and eager to be home by tonight!
      Sorry for such a slow mail; nowadays things that would take only 4 days for The Netherlands, do take 14 days or more; no fun!
      Hope you soon get notified!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  8. That is such a beautiful lily! The white color stands out in dark day. I didn't know this flower, but I don't know most plants - I learn new things a lot here :-)
    Glad you are coming home. Please rest well. I hope you recover quickly xoxo

      Glad that I did have lots of blogposts scheduled... Loved to show our late summer blossoms and miss being able to walk out in the sunshine...
      The pain is gone, only when they dress it new, it hurts when they press an Iodoform packing strip into the small cut.
      Hope to be sleeping in my own bed tonight.
      Hugs,

  10. Liebe Mariette,
    was für eine schöne Blüte. Die Sumpf-Lilie kannte ich noch nicht.
    Was hast du denn mit deiner Hand gemacht?? Du Ärmste! Ich wünsche dir eine ganz baldige Genesung. Zum Glück ist es die linke Hand, oder bist du Linkshänderin? Aber eigentlich ist es immer nicht gut, wenn man gesundheitlich angeschlagen ist. Ich wünsche dir, dass alles ganz schnell wieder gut wird.

    Ganz liebe Genesungswünsche schickt dir über den Ozean

    1. Liebe Eva,
      Diese Sumpf-Lilie wächst ja auch nur hier in der USA.
      Nein ich bin nicht linkshändig aber das typen mit zehn Finger geht vielleicht noch nicht sofort...
      Mein Zeigefinger war sehr geschwollen und dann die ganze Hand. Im Januar 2010 hatte ich auch schon zu tun mit so ein Angriff am eigenem Körper wobei ich völlig gelähmt war wegen eine seltene Form von Autoimmune Krankheit.
      Freitag wurde den Finger operativ geöffnet und auch lies man Kulture wachsen im Labor. Gestern kam raus das überhaupt nicks gewachsen ist; an sich gut aber es bleibt für das Medische Team ein Rätsel und auch für mich. Ich habe via I.V. Viel Antibiotika und auch Flüßigkeit zugedient bekommen und das Fieber ist runter. Ich soll heuteabend heim gehen dürfen...
      Liebe Grüße,
      Mariette

  11. Dear Mariette,
    I have been worried about you since you left a comment that you were cold in the hospital! Hope you are recovering, my Dear! Your swamp lily is very unusual and pretty. You always grow the most amazing flowers! I have not seen or heard of these. I hope they multiply for you and I hope all is healing nicely.
    Hugs xo

      Thank you but I am home by now and recovering from surgery to my left index finger. Did sleep very well in my own bed after 5 nights in the hospital.
      This swamp lily is a beauty and we got plenty of them, in both our garden beside the gazebo and a bigger patch in the wood garden.
      Sending you hugs,
      Mariette

      Ja, een pech week kun je het wel noemen maar ik ben weer thuis en mag zelf de verzorging doen vanaf nu. In een week na de zeven dagen orale antibiotica zal het wel een heel eind genezen zijn.
      Liefs en hartelijk dank!

  13. Liebe Mariette,
    ich lese gerade deine Antwort auf Elviras Kommentar. Egal, Hauptsache, es wird besser und du darfst nachhause. Die Lilie ist wunderschön. Wir haben hier rosafarbene Crinum im Gartencenter. Da sind die Blüten aber riesengroß, fast wie Amaryllis.

      Ja gut dass du mitgelesen hattest. Ich bin wieder heim seid 19:30 Uhr gestern abend. Gut geschlafen im eigenen Bett und nach diese 7 Tage orale Antibiotika wird es bestimmt viel besser sein.
      Diese Blüte ist sehr lieb aber es gibt insgesamt ganz viele davon wie du schon rausgefunden hast. Diese ist nur die Sorte die hier vor kommt.
      Ganz liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette

  14. Lieve Mariette,

    Wat naar dat je plotseling in het ziekenhuis terecht kwam en geopereerd moest worden aan hand.Hoop dat alles goed gegaan is en dat je spoedig mag herstellen.En wanneer er iets uit kweek komt er goede behandeling zal volgen.
    Prachtige bloem die je hier laat zien,ik ken hem niet,alhoewel ik even moest denken aan Pancratium maritimum die op Kreta op het strand bloeien,maar toen ik ging zoeken op namen en afbeeldingen blijkt het toch niet zo te zijn.

    Wil je van harte beterschap wensen en lieve groet!!!

      Ja het leven is nu eenmaal vol met verrassingen... Maar ik ben weer thuis sinds gisteravond 19:30u en dat is al heel wat. Thuis rust je ook beter in je eigen bed.
      Nog 7 dagen lang de orale antibiotica en dan zal het wel weer goed zijn.
      Nee, deze bloem is wel erg typisch voor hier. Mooi gezicht en ze groeien zo in de volle grond en komen elk jaar terug en ook meer.
      Dank je voor de goeie wensen en liefs terug,

      Danke vielmals! Ja es ist immer komplizierter bei jeder Eingriff oder jede Krankheit... Aber wenn man schon wissen kann, weswegen, das hilft uns schon weiter.
      Bin aber noch so müde, ob ich zu hause die erste Nacht auch gut geschlafen habe.
      Wir warten ab, in einer Woche mit meine orale Antibiotika Kur muss es schon besser sein.
      Liebe Grüsse,
