Dear All,

Julian said in his introduction that Albuca altissima is an old name for A. 
maxima. Perhaps since he keeps up to date with all the changes he can tell 
us if there used to be a species by that previous name that is now included 
in A. maxima that came from a specific area or if Albuca maxima is just a 
new name. The Cape Encyclopedia describes A. maxima as being found in most 
of the different areas described. It sounds like Jim Shields has his 
growing on a different cycle if it is the same plant.
