   This member of the Hyacinthaceae family was described by John Lindley and Joseph Paxton in 1851. Found in Natal province, South Africa. Easy with soil, water and sun. The onion grows to 5 centimetres the left to 20 centimetres. The flowers are green to white-crème. I stole mine in Dom Knieke (world largest bookshop), Moscow in 1984.

Could be a bit onion-like to be a caudiciform, but I have had it since 1984, and I like it! It's a fine small plant.
