Ledebouria

provided by wikipedia EN

Ledebouria is a genus of African bulbous perennial herbs in the Asparagus family, Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae.[2] Most members were previously part of the genus Scilla. A number of species are grown by cacti and succulent enthusiasts for their patterned leaves.[3]

Most of the species are native to Africa or Madagascar, but a few are from India, Sri Lanka or the Arabian Peninsula.[1]
