~ Plant identified as: Society Garlic (Tulbaghia violacea)

I'm getting old and I know that I Know what this plant is, I'm just drawing a blank at the moment! (Well, to be honest I've been trying to remember the name of it for a couple of weeks now!!) It grows in clumps of little bulbs and I'm thinking Rain Lily, not Zephyranthes but maybe Habranthus?? Does anyone recognize this one?

Thank you Janet! That's exactly what it is ... "Society Garlic". It's very popular here and I couldn't remember the name of it for the life of me!
