 Lesson I learned here is always to photo the name plate when out and about. Would be very greatful if anyone can give this beauty a name.

Was it grown in a hot place?

Was that in garden you visited?

That's amazing. Do you think it's a bulb, a corm or a swollen root.

Never seen anything like that

Was taken at Wavehill a garden on the hudson just north of Manhattan still in NYC. I think nutcutlet has it there it looks like the "Boophone disticha" from the pic in the link above.

Many thanks!

Having said that the bulb colour looks more like the "Boophone haemanthoides"

and thanks again!
