It does look like a Hymenocallis, perhaps H. harrisiana.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I agree, certainly a Hymenocallis...it should be fine near your plumeria.

I agree, definitely looks like Hymenocallis: http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/children/528166/

I didn't find any photo's of H. harrisiana: Spider Lily (Hymenocallis harrisiana) in our database yet so if it turns out to be that one I hope you will consider adding the photo's!
