Ledebouria socialis, commonly know as Silver Squill has unique teardrop shaped bulbs that form above the ground. They look like little purple bladders and can store moisture in times of drought. The leaves spring from these structures and are lance shaped and silver spotted with purple undersides. In summer, pink stems form bearing small greenish flowers. The entire plant only gets up to 10 inches (30 cm) tall with a rosette formed from foliage out of the bulbs. It is favored by succulent growers, but it is not a succulent, although it resembles one and has the drought tolerance of the group.
