Help identifying this 'lily'

We were told this plant is a "Crimean Lily". But unable to find any info under that name. About 4' high. How big will it get? Does it propagate? What temps can it handle? Will appreciate any assistance identifying it. Thanks.

It looks like a purple leaved Canna Lily. I see them a lot living in Texas and all. But I've never seen them with purple leaves here...just the green. :)

I hope this helps!

Appreciate the input. But I have now identified this as a Crinum Lily. Thanks.

Here is a link that might be useful: Crinum Lily
