Hi Carol, Susan et al:
                            It is a good opportunity to compare Alberto's 
great images of two true Hymenocallis species against that of Carol 
daughter's  Ismene. It can be Ismene 'Festalis' or Ismene 'Advance'. Even 
without an image Carol's description of the plant having a stem or "trunk" 
from which the leaves appear points to a Ismene.
