My sweet Joe had this odd sculptural plant growing in a wine barrel at the old house when I met him. We moved it to the yellow house two years ago and it grew very large but never bloomed. Joe did not recall if it bloomed or not. Lo and behold it does.
After two years here is the bloom:
It is a Peppermint Lily.
Do you see those stripes?
Here you can see the tall leaves of this lily.
It is as tall as our lantana which is also tremendous.

Have you had any garden surprises?
