From the Amaryllidaceae Family, this is a Crinum augustum 'Queen Emma' (common name: Giant Spider Lily, Queen Emma Lily), or so I think, that I love very much due to its large-size, healthy looking purplish leaves and pink flowers. Propagated from a clump at the Irrigation Pond, this clump is growing very, very well. Hopefully it would flower soon.

The next 2 photos are close-up photos of the Casuarina glauca 'Counsin It' (common name: Prostrate Swamp Oak; Family: Casuarinaceae) grown below the Crinum. What are the small structures amongst the needle-like leaves? Are they the miniature cones?
