Cynthia, don't give up on the Urginea as fantastic garden bulbs and absolutely amazing flowers.  Well worth growing if you have the right conditions!

It could be that there are blue fowered varieties in their native habitat - though if there were, I would think they would be grown in agriculture for cut flowers as well.  They were brought to the US to be evaluated for use as a rat poison.  The agriculture/horticulture use is incidental….
