Ledebouria grandifolia is endemic to Socotra and there are some great images of it on the Scottish Rock Garden Club website. A few forumists were there earlier this year and caught it in flower. It is bulbous and was only rediscovered in the past few decades I think (ca. 1996). It was described as a Haemanthus with just the leaves being collected for the type specimens. 

As far as I know its not really in cultivation except maybe in some very private collections. Its definitely not one I have and I have a lot of Ledebouria.

Ledebouria grandifolia does not appear on the pbs plants list of ledebouria

So - is that telling me it is not a "bulbous" plant?

A search of the internet shows it is endemic to Yemen.

What can people tell me about this plant?
