Not a native but a plant from the Cape Province of South Africa. I suspect this bulb has been thrown out of a pot after a Christmas flowering indoors, however it seems to be doing rather well here at the side of the road!

These plants are quite capable of naturalizing an area and indeed do so in the Med.
