Actually, since this plant is not a different species, this commonly used name is botanically incorrect. Bulbs bearing this label, however, have undergone a special treatment so that they will yield not just one flower cluster to a bulb but several. Each of these flower stalks has fewer florets, but the plant as a whole is quite lovely.
