This beauty grown like a weed. Is spreading with out any help. Very fragrant...stronger at night. We live about 10 miles from the coast east of the north end of Lake Okeechobee in south central FL. Would love to know what this gem is.
Thanks for any help possible.

Crinum asiaticum perhaps? Or Crinum amabile?

Grlwonder, the flowers resemble but the appearance of the plant, leaf and stem are different. Dracaena fragrans is not
branched, has larger leaves and without long petioles ... Dracaena aubryana with petiole 5-30 (-100) cm long.

The Dracaena aubryana from my mom , see the stems, petioles and leaf blade grooved :
