Hymenocalis festalis

The beautiful flowers of Hymenocalis (also known as Ismene) resemble gracefully misshapen daffodils with long curly petals. The stamens project from the cut edge perianth. They do well in pots or borders, plant in a well drained, sheltered position. Highly recommended and last well as a cut flower.
