I apologize if my flower terminology is all wrong! I am a novice but I am trying to figure out what type of flowers these are because my mother really liked them. These pictures are from a cell phone so that might explain the poor quality. We saw them in San Francisco this past week (first week of June). They were lining a driveway. The pictures speak for themselves - the plant has many low leaves with one long stem coming out of it off of which are a number of lavender flowers. The flowers seem trumpet shaped (?) but the petals are sort of shaped like a star at the opening.
