Howdy again All,

Thanks to Alberto Castillo for pointing me in the right direction.  The
spelling is actually Tulbaghia comminsii (or cominsii) and it is NOT the
orange variety.  However, from this I was able to work out that another
offering in the same catalogue was incorrectly labelled as Tulbaghia
comminsii (when I corrected the spelling).

So.... for those of you who are interested, the species that fits the
description I sent would appear to be Tulbaghia leucantha.  They really ARE
orange and silvery grey flowers.  Unlike anything I have seen as a
Tulbaghia before.

Guess who is going to be ordering from that catalogue tomorrow <grin>.

Thanks Alberto for responding.  I will actually be ordering both of teh
Tulbaghias as I rather like them both.  Nice to know that the catalogue is
