The Giant lily (Doryanthes excelsa) belongs to Agavaceae (the Agave family). It is an evergreen shrub that is distributed in New South Wales, eastern Australia. It grows in dry sclerophylls and is about 5 m high. The leaves at the base are sword-shaped and rosette-shaped, and are 2.5 m long. In spring, long flower stalks are extended and large inflorescences are attached to the tips, and red-pink and white flowers come in bloom. The bracts are red. The length of the flower piece is 10 to 16 cm, and it will warp when it matures.
