Today was my first time to hear of this flower...it is an old timey Perennial. I am hoping someone has a picture of it. Thanks...reba/La.

I believe you're referring to Passiflora incarnata, Maypop (one of the Passionflowers). Here's a link to one with one version of the story, although the bloom in the pic looks more like my Passiflora 'Incense'.

You can Google for more pix-seems there's quite a variety out there on the web.

The plant pictured above, Neomarica gracilis, does go by the common name Apostle Plant, but more often is called Walking Iris.

I talked with the lady who has this flower. She said this is what her Father called it but it might have another name but she doesn't know. And the blooms are gone now or she would let me see it. Then she say...she just saw one blooming in someones else yard yesterday...so I ride by there and the blooms are gone. But it looks like the plant itself could be a lily...like the Easter Lily maybe...thanks for all your help...reba
