    Here is a photo of a plant which grows everywhere on the Oregon Coast. It is referred to a Corn Lilly. I can find no info on a Corn Lilly in my searches.

    Thanks for any information you may share.

    Crocosmia of some kind. It's a good year for it here, and I've often wondered where it came from.

    Crocosmia x crocosmiiflora. Native to Africa, weedy in mild damp climates elsewhere.

    Corn lily has been used for at least one Veratrum sp. A few of these ARE native here and do produce a tall plant with a corn-like tassel of flowers at the top.
