Try these

Since it rather looks like a Nile Lily (Agapanthaceae) I thought to start there. Since that is a monogeneric family, I looked for relatives:

"Several genera that were historically classified in the Alliaceae, including Androstephium, Bessera, Bloomeria, Brodiaea, Dandya, Dichelostemma, Milla, Petronymphe, Triteleia, and Triteleiopsis, are now increasingly thought to represent a separate family, Themidaceae.

Allium
Ancrumia
Caloscordum
Erinna
Garaventia
Gethyum
Gilliesia
Ipheion
Leucocoryne
Miersia
Milula
Muilla
Nectaroscordum
Nothoscordum
Solaria (genus)
Speea
Trichlora
Tristagma
Tulbhagia
Zoelnerallium

Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliaceae"

Go to Google, search for Images of each of these genera and see if you get a match

Thanks Tami for the info. I've gone down the list and still haven't had any luck on the ID yet. Still looking. Brenda

It sort of reminds me of society garlic which is in the same family as Lily of the Nile, I believe. The main thing about society garlic is that it has an odor that reminds you of garlic. A closeup of the flowers would help identify it.
