Does anyone know what this plant is called?
It looks tropical-ish to me, but I don't know. Some bromeliad, maybe?
I don't have access to the plant shown in the picture, BTW. I found the picture online, without any other identification info.
I found some candidates by scanning results from Google Image Search.
Interestingly enough, none is a bromeliad, or even tropical. In order of similarity (to my eyes) to the picture above:
Veratrum californicum (aka California corn lilies)
Veratrum viride (aka false hellebore)
Allium tricoccum (aka [wild] leeks)
After some more scanning, I'm inclined to call it some species of Veratrum/corn lily: a local beauty with an exotic look.
