Ismene Festalis or Peruvian daffodil

It is a deciduous, bulbous, hybrid perennial of garden origin that looks like a spidery daffodil with extremely narrow perianth (petal-like) segments.
Reliably winter hardy to USDA Zone 8. In Northern states, bulbs must be lifted in fall. Best grown in moist, humusy, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Soils must never be allowed to dry out. Plant bulbs 4” deep and space 8-12” apart in mid-spring. Garden grown bulbs must be lifted in fall after foliage die back and before first frost. Dig carefully (try to retain as much root as possible), dry and store in a cool, dry location (50s) in a dry medium such as peat or perlite.
For containers, plant in spring with the necks of the bulbs slightly above the soil surface. Container grown bulbs may be overwintered in the containers by withdrawing moisture as the foliage begins to die back and storing pots indoors in a cool, dry location.
