Mexican Lily. This Mexican native has soft yucca-like leaves which are not at all lethal. The leaves are a shiny green and up to 3' long and 2-3' wide with pendulous tips. Flowers are produced on a 6-7' branched inflorescence with red flowers tipped in green. Occasionally, one can see Passiflora-like fruit along the stems. When it flowers, the old parent plant dies but then puts up 4-6 "pups" around its base. These will then flower in about 2 years to repeat the process. Because of the feral goat population destroying them in Mexico, it can only be found in some of the most inaccessible mountainous areas. It seems to appreciate some shade in the Deep South and will flower quite well in rather dense shade.
