This past July I was hiking along a huge cliff near Hole In The Wall on
Grand Manan Island of the coast of New Brunswick - this was the only
plant growing on - out of - the rock, I was amaized by its ability to
grow under such adverse conditions, but I can not find out what it is -
Any help identifying this plant would be welcome.
Did you see any blooms? I have a plant similar to this. It is a kind of
'torch lily' but not the big red-hot pokers. These are much smaller and
the buds start out like your picture and then shoot up on a slender stem
to open into a small clump of yellow flowers. I know I have the label
around here somewhere. I'll see if I can find it. My plant has gotten
huge, with quite a numbers of small plants hanging out of the pot.
Epiphytic roots everywhere...
Do you have any other pictures of it?

"Bulbine Frutescens" and this looks like my plant and I think like your
Your area may be too cold for this plant though. It says it goes to 20
degrees but I find I have to grow it in pots and keep it in the garage
in winter. Atlanta gets some pretty cold weather for the 'South', 15-20
degrees is becoming more normal here. I bought two plants and put one in
the ground and the other in a pot. The potted one (wintered in the
garage) is now huge and the one in the ground died.
Still - it may be some variety of this plant.
Be happy to send you some if you want.
