They look an awful lot like Polyxena longituba? See mine in reply 196.

Thank you for your polite suggestion, David...or my awful growing skill ::) ;D
In anyway this plant has broad leaves as P. ensifolia, unlike your P. longituba with liner leaves.

Daubenya comata from Penroc seed. In bud looks like a little eucomis.

Strumaria truncata has an interisting cataphyll. In most plants i have seen it is a deep almost black maroon. But in a plant from Garies it is a lighter maroon.
