I bought the bulb in Feb 2014, forgot it until May, put then in a very deep pot, and although it's made leaf in 2015 and 2016, it's finally flowered this year. It's in semi shade, and shares the pot with Gaura. It has a sweet kind of honey scent. Started to flower in July, still going strong. Any ideas? Thanks

What you've got there is a eucomis, sometimes called a pineapple flower. Not sure which variety though.
Cheers,
