Sorry, I thought i checked the link. There are a number of Albuca species, below is a link that includes A spiralis. The species plant tends to be low growing, rather ground hugging. A spiralis 'Frizzle Sizzle' Is a more upright plant. It seems Albuca spiralis gets about 4 or 5 inches tall, while Frizzle Sizzle tends to be 8 inches oe so.

My plant was a birthday gift from a friend who purchased it at a local nursery. It is Albuca spiralis 'Frizzle Sizzle'

Thank you so much. Also found the Moraea Tortilis....spiral grass is another form of the plant.

Sierradawn, the Moraea tortilis and the Albuca are not related. Moraea is in the family Iridaceae and Albuca is in the family Hyacinthaceae, but they certainly look like they should be....although the Moraea has flat leaves like Iris plants and the Albuca has round leaves leaves . They can easily we mistaken for each other.
