Not that this will clarify anything, but albuca seeds I collected in
2008 in Uniondale produced plants that are identical to A. Augrabies
Hills. I believe I sent some of these seeds to the BX, but I don't
know the number offhand.

The interesting part is that Uniondale, at the eastern end of the
Little Karoo, is about 1000 km away from the Augrabies area, and is a
completely different climate/environment.

This must either be a very adaptable albuca species,  or what is in
the trade really didn't come from the Augrabies area.
