Thanks Chuck.  And a lovely plant it is.  Have had it in a container so far, as I wanted to make sure that whatever it was, it wouldn't become invasive, but now can put it in the garden.  Zoning is about the same as yours, 9, slightly overlapping into 10.  Flowering now, since early this month, so end of the winter.

No. Your bulbs are truly Tulbaghia simmleri. I have another couple of species without any garlic smell. For me T/ simmleri is a winter bloomer
