    This plant looks like a Antitrium Lily that I have in my garden.

    Thanks both of you. It is a Spiderwort. Nice fact I found. How Spiderwort Got Its Name A young lad was working alone in his garden one day and stopped to pick a beautiful blue flower whose stamens had turned pink. A small radioactive spider hiding on the flower bite him and gave him the superhuman ability to grow in almost any soil. Thus was born “Spiderwort Man.” The first couple of movies were big hits, but people soon tired of a superhero who just sat there and bloomed, and enthusiasm for another sequel waned. OK, here’s the real story. Spiderwort gets its name from the sticky sap that comes out when you cut a stem. The sap dries into white, thread-like stuff that resembles a spider’s web. I like my first explanantion better.
