Holmskioldia sanguinea - Chinese Hat plant

Flowers with no petals it seems. I missed the name of this flower. Anyway, it made my day for being the flower that looked really out of the ordinary. Thank you Marina for your comment and giving me the name. I read that this plant was originally from the lowlands of the Himalayas. It must be a very adaptable plant coming from a cool climate and to be able to thrive in our comparatively warm one.
