My stargazer lily! This was also grown from a bulb as a labor of love. Also, like the tulips, I planted these in far too shady a spot because I had no idea what I was doing. This guy, however, lived for many years and got bigger each year...until last year my husband decided to 'help' weed my overgrown flower bed and ripped it out! Needless to say I was pretty ticked at husband over this one, he could've probably set fire to anything else on our lot but this one flower and it was the one thing he demolished. :( He meant well though, and, to be fair, felt pretty bad about it.
Fortunately, I still have the images and I guess it paves the way to plant something else.
