Polyxena longituba

 
Synonym(s) Lachenalia longituba
Family hyacinthaceae
Life cycle
Flowers pink (fall)

Fall-blooming bulb from South Africa. I've not found a reference describing its hardiness, although it apparently does grow in the coldest area of South Africa.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
