some flowers, dead and alive

Neither of which I grew, but they are in my house and I have enjoyed looking at them, so here are some pictures.
My husband bought me this bouquet of flowers two weeks ago. Most of them are still alive and very pretty.
I love the speckles.
The trumpet shape reminds me of daylilies.
I used google image search to identify them- Alstroemeria. It's a perennial bulb, and can grow in my hardiness zone- hm...
The other day my daughter dragged home a fallen branch out of the woods. I broke up some of it for the fireplace and it had a lovely scent. Ends had some of these dried flowers.
You can see the stigma is very long- it extends past the petals. I do think it's from a tulip tree.
