Kevin and Jim, Thank you both for taking the time to respond. As I said in the response to Boyce... I just had never heard of a variegated Hymenocallis. I definitely picked the right place to ask by the sound of it!! Thanks again. Cheers. Paul Tyerman Canberra, Australia. USDA equivalent - Zone 8/9 mailto:email@example.com Growing....
