Garry Koenigsberg wrote 'I bought an onion-sized bulb at the San 
Francisco Arboretum years ago, but lost track of the name. The plants 
multiply at a ridiculous rate and thrive on neglect. The leaves are 
about a foot tall, and the stems a bit taller, bearing several florets. 
Each has four white and green petals that open around four more petals 
that remain attached at the top.'
