Dear Mary Sue and all,
 Indeed this species remains an engime for me as well.  Three years ago I
got 100 large mature bulbs from South Africa.  I planted them in all
sorts of conditions: in the ground, containers,  on the coast,  under
plastic cover. Not one has flowered yet and I pose myself the question 
if they are genetically apt to flower. May be I should try  some other stock.
Kind Regards
