B. marginata appears to be,  That's the only one I've been able to test
directly -- yet.

Congratulations on getting all those Brunsvigias to bloom!

It's because of questions like this that I put tags on the flowers when I
make crosses.  I use twist ties, write the name of the pollen parent on the
side of the tie, and twist it around the flower stem.  The only downside is
that you have to write really tiny...
