Dear Jane et al:
        n the group of tender winter growing Cape Ornithogalums 
besides dubium you have O. maculatum that is very attractive. A number of 
hybrids of this group was raised years ago in California in several yellows, 
cream, buff, apricot, several oranges, salmons, etc. They were stunning.

     Ornithogalum dubium specially should be grown in every bulb 
collection as an indicator plant since (like Lachenalias)it is EXTREMELY 
susceptible to viruses and show signs very soon.
