From Roy Herold:


13. Ambrosina bassii--Small offsets
14. Drimia sp (formerly Rhadamanthus)--ex Tom Glavich, BX214-19. This is indeed quite 
different from D. platyphylla, although the leaves are similar. The 
bulbs are two to three times the size of platyphylla, it emerges a 
month sooner (in full leaf now), and it has the curious habit of forming 
little bulbils at the soil surface at the top of the bulb neck. It has 
yet to bloom for me. Only a few.
15. Drimia sp. Calitzdorp--ex Gariep Nursery. Similar to 
platyphylla, but the jury is out on a positive ID. Only a few.
16. Cyrtanthus brachyscyphus
17. Cyrtanthus hybrid #1 ex Logee's. Big, soft orange trumpets. Evergreen.
18. Cyrtanthus hybrid #2 ex Logee's. Smaller medium orange trumpets 
fading to pink. Evergreen.
