I think I have a Haemanthus montanus, but I need your help to determine if  
I'm correct.  Unfortunately, I don't have a picture, but here's a  description:
The flowers are white with bright yellow-orange anthers, and there are 1-2  
dozen of them in kind of an umbel at the end of an 18-24" stem.  Leaves are  as 
long as the stem, narrow, straight and smooth, held semi-erect.   I've looked 
at the pictures on PBS and the Web, but none show either flowers or  leaves 
clearly.  If it isn't H. montanus, what other species could it  be?
Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation.
