I think I'm going to have to start digging  into some of my old issues of 
HERBERTIA/PLANT LIFE for the facts.  Woelfle, Korsakopff, and Caldwell all 
did some interesting hybridizing 40 to 60 years ago.  I came into it at the 
tail end, and never did get many interesting Hymenocallis crosses, none in 

Due to that LONG time ago, my recollections are subject to revision and 
need verification, I'm afraid.
