Urginea is a genus in the Hyacinthaceae family that is/was mostly African with some Mediterranean species. This is a bulbous genus with white to pale yellow or pink flowers. In A revised generic synopsis of Hyacinthaceae in sub-Saharan Africa (2004) Manning et.al. included this genus in the genus Drimia.

Seeds of this genus should be sown as soon as possible because they are ephemeral (Rachel Saunders).
