Distribution: Africa: South Africa: Western Cape: Northern Cape:


A small winter growing bulb that is widespread in the Western - and Northern Cape. The plants flower in spring with the old leaves clasping the flower stem.

The specific plants pictured here near Oudtshoorn have very different leaves than plants from e.g. Calvinia. Anybody with more info please (Contact).

I hope to add an image of the leaves soon.
