Anybody can help me ID this bulb?

Dear KaDai,
	This is one of hundreds of selections of Rohdea japonica. The 
typical form has plain green elongate leaves, but there are forms 
with variegated foliage, spotted foliage, ridged foliage and more. 
This is not a disease at all, but highly desirable.

	The Japanese have a number of Rohdea societies and shows. 
This is avery nice form with white edges and a central white ridge 
(also called a 'dragon' in Rohdea terminology).

	Very nice.
