That is Hymenocallis rather than Ismene.  Which species is another 
question; we need a bit more data.

1. Close-up of flower showing how tepals attach  and length of tube.

2. Leaves -- how wide, how long, cross section

3. Where is it from?  Geographic place of origin can narrow down the 

Or you can simply send a bulb of it to me and wait a year or two and I'll 
tell you what it is.  I must admit that when Tony Avent does that, I have a 
couple of times let him down, so be warned!  Maybe you should send a bulb 
to Tony instead.....
