Hi Joe and all,

Z. atamasco for me has little to usually no foliage from April to the end of
November, while Z. candida is nearly evergreen. Z. atamasco blooms from
December to March with an upward facing star shaped large flower with reflex
tepals while Z. candida blooms from July to October crocus-shaped cupped
medium sized flowers

If you are able to compare the flowers of your two plants side by side that
could be your sign. I have never had these two bloom together but the flower
shape is a give away way tell them apart.
