Hi Jane,

The plant known as "Albuca spiralis Frizzle Sizzle" from Logees shows a
picture of A. namaquensis as Monica mentioned, but it actually is something
else entirely. I have seen the actual plant and it appears to be a weird
morph of probably A. namaquensis, much larger and much more robust that is
bred as a bedding plant. The flowers on the plants are deformed, which
makes me think it's a by-product of breeding it for size. I think it's one
of those that can take year round water as long as it doesn't get very hot
so you can just keep it going.
