Ledebouria socialis ‘Miner’
Family:Hyacinthaceae.

"Ledebouria socialis is native to the arid savanna in summer-rainfall regions of eastern S Africa and is probably the most popular bulb among succulent collections. Its above-ground bulbs are clothed in peeling, papery tunics that prevent water loss. Thus, the plants survive drought as effectively as any succulent. ‘Miner’ is a dwarf selection about half the normal size and has particularly silvery, finely spotted leaves. Divisions of HBG 73608, a plant obtained from M. Vassar as L. socialis ‘Minor’, which had it ever been published would be an invalid Latinized cultivar name. The new name is a homonym alluding both to the plant’s dwarf stature and the horticultural process of selection in search of worthy cultivars."(From Plant Introductions of the Huntington Botanical Gardens).

-The plant genus Ledebouria is named after Carl Friedrich von Ledebour(1785-1851),who was an German-Estonian botanist
