When I was doing the intake phase of the NARGS Seed Exchange in the 
mid-1990s, I got a donation from Australia that included Calostemma 
purpureum. The envelope fell open, and out rolled what looked like a 
bunch of sprouting garbanzo beans. I potted them up and gave samples 
away at our local chapter. The ones I kept are in flower as I write. 
This is not a showy flower but of course interesting to grow an 
Australian geophyte here.
