Hi all,

Saw this plant at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival today and was wondering what it was. It reminds me of a nerine, but it has a different inflorescence and I haven't seen this colour in a nerine before, so I doubt it is one.

Thanks.

I believe this is a bulb called Ornithogalum nutans.
The back of the petals show the green stripe which is typical of the flowers.

I agree, it sure does look like Silver Bells (Ornithogalum nutans)
