This member of the Hyacinthaceae family was given this name by Carl Linnaeus the younger in 1786, and is found in the Cape Province, South Africa on the sand plains. It's a winter-grower, and doesn't need much water in the summer. The bulb will grow to 25 centimetres and the corkscrew leaves to 50 centimetres. The fine bell-shaped flowers are white-greenish. It can be reproduced both by clusters and seeds.

 I also seen it as a Liliaceae (MoBot, APNI), Hyacinthaceae (IPNI, Uni of Connecticut).

This is a winter grower.
