I used to grow a "Peruvian daffodil" that I obtained from an old gardener. I
too grew it for a good 20 years and it offset like crazy. I'd lug the
immense clumps into the basement each fall and plant them out in rows in
spring when they would bloom all together in about two weeks and provide me
with luxurious bouquets of cut flowers with heavenly scent. I got lazy and
needed the space anyway and let them and my tuberoses freeze the year before
last. I distributed a mixture of the hymenocallises/ismenes that I grew, on
the BX a few years ago. Does anyone remember/have any to share with us?
