Dear All,

My guess is that Lee's mystery plant is Nemastylis geminiflora, syn. N. 
acuta. The only thing that doesn't quite seem right is the books say that 
the flowers shrivel at midday and Lee's were open much longer. The painting 
in my "Texas Flowers in Natural Color" looks like this species, also known 
by its common name, Prairie Celestial. Cynthia, is this a flower you are 
familiar with?
