Dear Jane,

My husband renamed Allium triquetrum,  Allium pestum. It is weedy in 
Australia and New Zealand and Northern California. There is a state beach 
where we hike each spring where there is an abandoned house that has slowly 
deteriorated and is now unsafe. It is interesting to see what is left of 
what must have once been planted there. It is there along with Zantedeschia 
aethiopica. On this same beach there is also Oxalis pes-caprae. The form of 
Watsonia meriana that produces corms in the leaf axils is the other one 
that has escaped into the native vegetation.
