This time I looked at the spelling in the wiki before posting. I have this Frit species in cultivation now but this one does not make as many seed pods. It could be the extreme habitat. A local native friend who has seen this bulb grown at a nearby inlet, mud flat for food claims their bulbs are much larger. True, my affinis bulbs are flatter. Am digging this fall and will study both spp. I plan to visit again in June to document flowering. I'll have some seed to share.
