Question by YJJA

I have all white plants that come up every year from under my house. The stems are white as well as the flower,they are kind of waxey looking and bell shaped hanging flower with a very tiny tiny bit of yellow on the inside they are about 8-9" tall when full grown, and only last only about 1 month. It almost looks like an albino lily of the valley but no leaves at all. Does anyone know what this may be?
