Just perfect ! I believe these to be: Disporum oreganum , a most beautiful plant.

Ron Hanko has replied to Marvin Matthews
You are correct, Marvin. Disporum is the current and more correct genus name. As to "hookeri" I find that hookeri, hookeri ssp. oreganum, and oreganum are all in use and have no idea which is considered more correct.
