Dear All,

I'll try again. The plant below was labeled Eucomis autumnalis (pink) by 
the Huntington. But all the pictures I see of E. autumnalis show it with 
pure white flowers. Could this be E. comosa instead? I smelled it and 
couldn't really detect a bad smell or really much of a smell. Is this one 
of those things that not everyone can smell or do some species have an 
unpleasant smell and others not. If so, can anyone tell us which ones have 
an unpleasant smell?……
