Several species of Albuca have bulbs with few scales an in some others the center simply disappears and the bulb looks like a doughnut.
Albuca nelsoni is evergreen with the growing season  in spring, summer and autumn, flowering in late spring. Full sun, frost free conditions, well drained soil. They clump well and some forms are very fine foliage plants. Bulbs will grow out of the the soil. Massive, they need large containers or the ground.

Slight frosts burn the foliage starting at the tips and then destroying the whole leaf.
