I was given some bulbs from Madiera as Ledebouria maculata and i am struggling to verify the name. The true Ledebouria maculata
comes from western India. I think this is probably Drimiopsis maculata, and the genus Drimiopsis has recently been sunk into
Ledebouria, at which point this becomes Ledebouria petiolata (in the way of these things!)

This is the only picture of the Drimiopsis that I have, taken at Kew earlier this year. Perhaps it is the same as my plant?
