Mystery Image--South American bulb

Hi everyone,

Hans Joschko sent a number of us an image scanned from a postcard of a 
group of flowering plants I believe from Chile. I have uploaded the file, 
but am not going to put the picture on the Mystery Page because I don't 
have permission from the photographer to use this picture. I am adding it 
briefly just so people can look at it and give Hans a guess about what it 
could be and then I will remove it. My guess (and I don't grow many of 
these) is a Rhodophiala. It looks like am Amaryllid of some kind anyway and 
the photo is really nice so I can see how it ended up on a postcard. Is 
that a snake or a stick in the picture? Hopefully some of our South 
American members will help him with this one or anyone who might be growing 
this plant.…
