We have Hymenocallis in bloom, in the lath house and on the deck.  These 
are all from Mexico originally.

Hymenocallis imperialis living entirely up to its original name -- "Big Fatty."

Hymenocallis eucharidifolia in the lath house -- looking a bit exotic and 
delightful, but soooo delicate and tender!

Hymenocallis glauca -- looking alot like eucharidifolia  except for glauca 
having glaucous foliage and being tougher.  On the deck in full sun.

Hymenocallis durangoensis

Hymenocallis guerreroensis -- looks alot like durangoensis but has already 
bloomed out.  The differences are subtle.

Some pictures are in my blog at:
under yesterday's date.
