14b. Hymenocallis henryae var. glaucifolia J. N. Henry & Gerald L. Smith, Herbertia. 54: 114. 1999.

Plants often growing in dense clumps. Leaves 4–7, erect, 3–6 dm × 1.9–2.9 cm; blade blue-green in appearance due to glaucousness. Tepals to 16 cm.

Flowering late spring. Cypress depressions at edges of pine flatwoods; of conservation concern; 0 m; Fla.

Hymenocallis henryae var. glaucifolia occurs only in Liberty County and represents an apparent divergence of the populations of H. henryae east of the Apalachicola River. In these plants, a heavy glaucousness causes the surface of the leaves to appear blue-green. This characteristic, along with the clumping habit and tepal length to 16 cm, supports recognition of these Liberty County populations as a distinct variety.
