Joe, you've done it again. First you show us acres of blooming Hymenocallis,
and now it's acres of Herbertia lahue. What wonderful images!
The bovines aren't bad, either. I was about to call them cows - I guess that
tells you that I didn't grow up in cattle country.  

My one lonesome plant of Hymenocallis liriosme seems pathetic. 

Tell us more about the Herbertia, please. I have not yet grown this,
although it's evidently doable outside here in a protected spot. 

I've read that the individual flowers are ephemeral. How long is the
blooming season for a group of plants?
