The proper modern chemical spelling is "sulfur."  The old name for the 
flower is probably "Sulphur Queen"  but is clearly recognizable spelled 
either way.  I don't know who created and names Ismene 'Suphur Queen' but 
the late Len Woelfle (Tennessee) created 'Pax' and some other hybrids of 
narcissiflora and amancaes.  I'll ask around...
