Dear Paul;
	Hymenocallis caribaea is  fairly common and available in a 
highly variegated form. Fairly tender to tropical, but sold cheaply 
as a water garden 'annual" - i.e. buy in spring, let it grow and 
bloom then freeze over winter. I saw some last weekend for about $7 
or 8 a nice pot full. Bloom is fairly sparse.
	Even though it is normally sold as Hymenocallis caribaea, 
this name may be suspect. The variegation is quite bright and nice. 
Wide vertical stripes with good contrast.

	Best		Jim W.
