    I don't own one, but it looks like some sort of lupine.

    Hi Robert,

    It's a lupine. Here's another picture:



    But be careful..... stay away from the characters of Monty Python. They say, "Gimme all your lupines!"

    The leaves don't look quite right though; lupines tend to have those star-ish shaped leaves.

    Beautiful flower, but I don't know what it is. I don't think it's a lupine either. That looks like a vine. The lupines I've seen have a form more or less like a Shasta daisy. Also, that's growing in a tropical climate, and I believe that lupines are temperate.

    Maybe it's a Bromeliad?

    I don't think it's that either. Bromeliads have those lance-shaped leaves, and no long stems either.
