Dear all:
           This cormlet production along the stalk is genetic and 
characteristic of the salmon form of Watsonia meriana (hence the name 
bulbillifera, not "bulbifera"). The other color forms of Watsonia meriana 
(not invasive). are well behaved and flower for a longer season. This plant 
is not only a potential menace in Mediterranean type climates. In E. Uruguay 
and some mild spots of Argentina it can cover considerable extensions and is 
not controlled by our year round rains as other South African bulbous 
plants. And, Mary Sue, the solution would be to spray the plants with 
glyphosate whem they are in full growth at flowering time.
