Bravoa is a genus in Agavoideae subfamily of Asparagaceae. In addition many believe it should not be a separate genus but included in Polianthes. All of the species which are tuberous with fleshy attached roots are native to Mexico. When they are kept separate from Polianthes, they are kept separate by color with the white or greenish white ones being included in Polianthes and the red or orange ones being considered to belong in Bravoa. These plants need plenty of moisture during their growing season, but kept on the dryish side in winter. Pictures and information about these species will be found on the Polianthes wiki page.
