Thanks everyone for bringing me into the 21st century.  I know that Hymenocallis and Ismene are different (in their subtleties); I just got stuck on old synonyms.

That is a Hymenocallis not an Ismene. The corona is far too big for H.
harrisoniana as well as H. maximiliani. H. palmeri would have a different
form to the corona evident even at this age of flower and the tepals would
be chartruese. There are a number of possible species and hybrids it could
be. It won't be possible to identify entirely without more details of the
plant and possibly where it is from though it could be narrowed down to
less choices.
