    Bruce, that flower looks somewhat like a "spider lily" that my Grandmother used to grow in New Orleans. It is beautiful, but not exactly the same, though...Does it have any fragrance? Betty :-)

    Oh, yes, Betty. It has a wonderful perfume fragrance. It is very faint unless you stick your nose in the bloom (at least this morning). Gosh, I had no idea it smelled so nice.

    cheers,

    I have those and yes they are the spider lilies. Very pretty and smell like heaven! Only problem here is that they get monster huge...and will take over quickly.

    I had peruvian daffs so I don't think that's your flower.
    I found this one though.
    "Common name: Long Flowered Spider Lily
    Botanical name: Pancratium longiflorum Family: Amaryllidaceae (Nargis family )
    Synonyms: Pancratium cambayense".Here's the link:Pancratium longiflorum - Long Flowered Spider Lily
    Check it out, maybe that's your plant!
    Happy 4th of July!!

    EDIT: well, I think there's a lot of plants that look alike! hehe
    seems like the peruvian daff' have some variations in their appearance!
    so I think I was wrong, it is a Peruvian Daffodil.

    I have one of those. It is commonly called Peruvian Daffodil. It is also known as Ismene. I love them!

    that was my guess Hymenocallis narcissiflora, I thought it could be similar to Pancratium maritimum but it is more rare. Hymenocallys aka Peruvian daffodil. the Pancratium has no green just white flowers
