And Hi Joyce:
                   A dark tunic would indicate an amaryllid in which case 
Hippeastrum petiolatum or some of the Cyrtanthi would be suspect. A clear 
tunic (and garllic smell?) would point to Allium triquetrum and perhaps 
neapolitanum. A pinkish shade to the tunics would indicate Allium roseum. A 
pest form of this latter has come from San Francisco in the past and it had 
a "mild" virus that rapidly spread to neighboring plants.
All the best
