I grow Anthericum ramoson and A. liliago var. major. Both came from seeds listed in exchanges as Paradisea liliastrum, and when one sees the latter name in horticulture, it's almost always misapplied. I've grown P. liliastrum, but it didn't flourish. However, the lower-elevation relative Paradisea lusitanica is an excellent garden plant here. It has quite tall flowering stems. Anthericums tend to self-sow a little too readily here, but A. liliago makes a good "grassy" ground cover all summer after flowering.
