General Information

Bulbous plant, in fact I discovered the bulbs in dry soil in my basement 20 years ago. They were my great grandmothers and I shared with the whole family. The original bulb must be 100+ years old and the size of a football. My great grandparents were Italian immigrants and strict catholics. Anyway the plant is now doing the best it ever has, this past easter having 20+ shoots.. Help me identify these sentimental flowers!!!

I'm pretty sure this is a day lily. The leaves are definitely a characteristic of them, you should google them. Most lilies have only one main stem with the leaves along the whole length.

To identify it, I'd need very close shots of the flowers (One flower filling the whole shot) and any other interesting features the plant may have.
It can help to set your camera to macro-zoom if it has it, it's usually the little flower icon on your camera.

Looks like a Tiger Lily, if you can get some closeups of the flower, I could tell you for sure.
