Neutral MotherNature4 On Feb 25, 2009, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

Wavy margined petals of white to deep pink top this floriferous, bulbous plant. They often flower before the strap shaped leaves appear. The fruiting head splits open as it dries. Fleshy round seeds fall to the sandy soil and germinate almost immediately. It is said they are easy to grow.
