Peruvian daffodil

Hymenocallis narcissiflora commonly called Peruvian daffodil or Spider Flower has intricately designed flowers and fragrance. This bulb is native to South America and Africa and hardy only to zones 8-10 in the US. This is my second year growing these bulbs and I have yet to experience the fragrance that I read so much about. Last year the bulbs bloomed at six inches but this year the stalks grew to two feet before it started to bloom. The first year I had them there were only two blooms per stalk but this year each stalk produced between four and five blooms.
