Hi Again,

Thanks for the trouble - I got an ID in my facebook group: 

Scilla peruviana (which interestingly enough, is not from Peru - the ship that brought the plant samples to Carolus Linnaeus in 1753 was called the Peruviana, and he was thus mislead).

Kind regards,

Hi Guys,

We bought about 9 of these plants from an indigenous plant nursery just outside Bredasdorp, South Africa.  They did not come with a tag and we are stumped as to what this actually is.…

Does anybody recognize this plant, even rough genus?
