I was given this plant a year ago. It survived a TX winter & is thriving in the heat. Does anyone know what it is? Does it bloom?

Looks like a lily or perhaps orchid foliage. But I do not know for sure. :?:

Also looks kind of like a non-varigated corn plant (the dracaena, not the veggie)

Yes it does, but it has wintered over. I have never heard of corn wintering over. Shocked

The veggie won't, but the dracaena is a perennial in zone 10 or higher, otherwise it is kept as a houseplant. What kind of Texas 'winter' was it?

Oooooh, tough but possible if it was in a protected area. So there's one possibility.

It does resemble in several aspects the dracaenas I have inside which I have never seen bloom. Can you track backwards to find where it came from and beyond before you got it. It also reminds me of a lowland plant that grew tall but had tops like this around Houston and Bryan when I lived there. I want to say the natives called that dumb cane but this does not look at all like any pictures of dumb cane. Think that name must have been a local anomaly. There is a amaryllis which has beautiful pink flowers whose leaves are like that but grow more out of the ground rather than up the stalk. It’s common name is the naked lady and I must confess I have not looked lately to see what it is doing but when in bloom is magnificent.

Westie - True Dumb Cane is also a Dracaena - the leaves are a bit different (wider) but I think many of the dracaena varieties are also nicknamed dumb cane because of the effect of the sap on the mouth. I know historically it has been used in place of soap for naughty children's mouths because of its effect! (I would NOT recommend it - I got rid of mine when I got cats because it is poisonous to small animals. Think what it could do to a child!)

I looked up photos for the Naked Lady & Dumb cane. Doesn't look like either. I think I'm just stumped. I did read that some of the plants the group suggested bloom in the fall. Maybe it will bloom then and I'll have a better way to identify it.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
