    I shot these during a trip to Santa Barbara last week, but I have no idea what flowers these are, can anyone help?

    I'm sure there are more knowledgeable people here then I am about plants :)

    1-Clivia Miniata
    2-Strelitzia Reginae (aka Bird of Paradise)

    Sorry, I don't know the common/non-latin name for the first one (if there is one).

    Not really. I just enjoy growing exotic plants and I have a Clivia and a Strelitzia growing in my living room. The Strelitzia was grown from seeds planted almost 4 years ago and the plant has yet to flower. As you can see from your picture I think it is worth the wait, as the flower has quite an extraordinary shape.

    I found the first one to be a "Bush Lily"
