Most Resnova were apparently Scilla at one point.  Shield's Garden 
(…) has a 
list of species and some pictures.  The species you're after isn't 
shown there, but it is briefly mentioned.  At least it gives you more 
idea what to expect.  Love the leaves..... very 
attractive.  Definitely a genus I haven't come across before, 
although looks like it is closely related to the Ledebouria area of 
the Scillas (the leaves look like what used to be Ledebourias).

I hope this is at least a minor help.  Jim's website is a fascinating 
site to visit.... some wonderful pictures and information in there, 
that is for sure.  Great stuff Jim (if you're reading this).  Thanks!!!
