This is a small genus of South African bulbs belonging to the Liliaceaea or Hyacinthaceae in the newer classification. They are characterised by having a pair of broad, almost flat leaves in the centre of which sits a tuft of flowers of either white, or reddish shαdes, contrasted with yellow pollen. Some are delightfully scented.
In the UK these are best grown in pots under glass as they are not reliably hardy, although some are found at altitudes where snow cover is known, so that they cannot be considered 'tropical'. A well drained fertile compost with an appropriate dry rest when dormant is all that they ask.
Ordering possible from Autumn and Spring lists.
