Gavin asked about Hesperantha vaginata.

Seed is readily available and easy to sprout in the correct season. Bulbs are not
readily available. Grow it from seed. I got my seed from Silverhill Seeds in Capetown,
South Africa. They ship to the UK. My one remaining bulb did not return this year, but I
have seed from it.

There are a lot of UK gardeners who grow winter-rainfall bulbs. I would think this is
not an easy plant to keep alive in a cool damp greenhouse, so you should talk to some
local growers about it.
