Brodiaea
Cluster-lilies
Cluster-liliess are a genus of flowering plants, many of which are grown ornamentally for their bright and abundant lily-like flowers. These flowers are highly aromatic and are often used in cut flower arrangements. They have a comparatively low stature and are deer-resistant.
Asparagus
Asparagus
Asparagus comprise a diverse genus of evergreen plants that can grow as lianas, bushes, or climbing plants. They are found in a wide variety of habitats, from rainforest to semi-desert regions. All asparagus species vary in their appearance, which is dependent on their native habitat. Some species are grown as vegetables, and others are grown as ornamentals.
Thysanotus
Fringe-lily
Fringe-lily is a genus of perennial herbs in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Lomandroideae. They are mostly native to Australia with 45 of the 50 known species occurring in Western Australia alone, although a few species range northward into New Guinea and Southeast Asia as far north as southern China.
Eustrephus
Eustrephus
Hyacinthoides
Hyacinthoides
Hyacinthoides are popular garden plants with bell-shaped flowers that predominantly come in shades of blue or lavender. They grow wild in woodland areas, where they make attractive groundcover. Many genera take on the name 'bluebell,' which can cause some confusion. The plants of this genus differ from others by having two bracts at the base of each of their flowers instead of one or none. The logo for the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland includes a plant from this genus.
Bowiea
Bowiea
Bowiea genus contains only one species: Bowiea volubilis, sometimes called the climbing onion. An odd-looking plant, this succulent perennial has a large, onion-like bulb that grows half-buried in the ground. It goes dormant during winter and develops new twining stems. It is often grown as an ornamental plant. In nature, bowiea grow in desert areas of eastern and southern Africa.
Dipcadi
Dipcadi
It is widely distributed occurring in southern Europe most of Africa and the Middle East through to the Indian subcontinent. Species of dipcadi grow from small bulbs. The solitary flower stem (scape) bears a loose raceme of green or brown flowers sometimes with different colours at the tips of the three inner tepals. The black seeds are in the shape of a disc or a flattened globe. As of spring 2013 the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families recognized 41 species and one hybrid.
