The flower by Cameron McMaste.

   This member of the Alliaceae family was given this name by Carl von Linnaeus in 1771. It is found in the western South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 20 centimetres in height. The flowers are brownish to purplish and green.

The genus was named for Ryk Tulbagh (1699-1771), governor of The Cape of Good Hope from 1751 till his death.

This is a winter grower.
