Saw this in San Jose and was curious if anyone knows what type of flower it is?

A nice flower but I have no idea :( All I know, it is dicotyl :) Well, maybe a member of Liliaceae...

Here 's your plant
Agapanthus praecox
Monocot
Family: Liliaceae
I think we should add this site to our favorites:
<a>http://plants.usda.gov/cgi_bin/</a>
(we can search the name and find some information)

Whoaa, I am half correct :lol:
Damn, I forgot to count the flower's petals (six) and the leaf's shape (tape with parallel veins). They are VERY monocots! Shame on me :oops: :oops:
Now I know why I used to have bad marks for Botany :roll: :P
