These are well known bulbs which occur in Cape Province. We have little to argue matters about Lachenalias because many other people know more than us. The main flower season is spring yet some species flower earlier in winter, and some other species are said to flower in autumn.
The flowers are showy, beautiful, or cute at least, and often fragrant. Moreover many species have ornamental markings on the leaves. We believe they are one of the best pot plants for window sill in spring.
They are easy plants at cool greenhouse. Propagation is also easy and many nurseries offer Lachenalia bulbs so you can get them easily.
