Knew it,forgot it,it's now in bloom..

The name I lost,but its a hardy silvery white fountain of thin leaves out of bloom. Now that it's blooming the leaves are folded down and its all stalk and flowers-the white tips of stamens were knocked off by a very heavy-record- subtropical storm that moved through the bay area two days ago. Wow,over 80f 27 c here and muggy. GW strikes again!

Thanks Gonzer. Once I forget's almost impossible to guess as so many look alike.
