Sorry, I clicked too fast here!!
probably some type of asiatic lily
Let's try this.
Lily, but not asiatic. Post pics when it blooms.
Thanks Sue for posting my mystery plant, I provided the link to my post with lots of pictures.
Here is a link that might be useful: More pics and info
May be virused.
RC, you're welcome. I thought just the pic, or pics, was all that was necessary to name the plant. I'm sure they will appreciate the info, also.
I think it is in a pot which might explain the yellow undernourished look.
It is indeed in a pot, I bought poinsettias, which died off, the bulbs of this plant were in the soil of the poinsettia plants. I discovered that when I was trying to use the soil.
The bulbs were a fleshy, pinkish, color and looked similar to what garlic looks like.
It's still in the original pot, gets a lot of sun, I am in Texas.
I'm assuming it is very hot and dry where you are so you need to plant it in a bigger pot and add a little fertilizer. Once the weather get cooler later on, plant it in the ground.
Lilies are prone to viruses, it would not be unexpected.
Now, I'm not say it lilies don't get viruses, but that looks like a plant in too small of a pot not getting enough nourishment. Lily viruses I've seen have odd streaking. spotting, and/or strange growth.
