I have obtained this from seeds of Silverhill, indicated like Tulbaghia ludwigiana, but it does not turn out to be, the plant and small the tight leaves like grass

Alessandro,
 
 It looks like T. leucantha, but check here; <  http://www.tulbaghia.com/  >.

 I have only grown a half dozen of the Tulbaghia species and T. galpinii is the most vigorous and floriferous for me.

Aaron, along with the pictures from the Gulf of Mexico's oil spill, we've been seeing on TV news some shocking weather events in Tennessee. I've been thinking of you and hoping you are not affected.

 Fortunately I'm in east Tennessee over the Cumberland Mountains which tend to steal the rain and leave us dry. In this case it slowed the storm system and we ended up with about 5 cm of rain rather than the 30+ that west Tennessee got.
