Identification and Care of Unknown Plants

peadar9 added on March 13, 2017 | Answered

What is the large tall plant just to the left of the large Red pot in the first picture? It is quite tropical looking and has large oval leaves. For that matter, any guesses what the plant is that is just next to the red pot, it grows from large white bulbs, and it is not an Iris or a lily of the Nile. I wonder what is it, or what is the one in the red pot? Second Pic, what is the large plant with cruciform leaves in the center? Any help much appreciated. We just bought the house and we do not know what these plants are or how to care for them. Peter

It can be difficult to make plant id's without growing zones and more details.

The plants to the left of the pot, may be Torch Ginger.

In the 2nd image you have a Split Leaf Philodendron.

Often times neighbors may have similar plantings and can offer some help.
I would also suggest you visit local garden centers and you can often find matches to your own landscape plants. Snip a leaf or two to take with you.
