Genus containing around 7 deciduous, bulbous, herbaceous perennials which are all found in Africa. This genus grows best in warm, seasonally wet, sandy soils. Between 3-60 red-pink or white, tubular blooms are produced on a branched inflorescence with equal length flower stalks, called an umbel. The individual flowers broadly resemble those of lilies, with more curled petals, termed reflexed as they bend backwards away from the flower throat.
