This tiny member of the
Amaryllidaceae family was given this name by Deirdré Anne Snijman in
1994. It is found in South Africa: Strumaria tenella subsp.
orientalis is found in the east, Strumaria tenella
subsp. tenella to the west, receiving winter rain. It grow in
grit or other well drained soil with little water and some to lots
of sun. The narrow, grass-like leaves get 10 centimetres long, the
inflorescence up to 15 centimetres, and unlike other Strumarias,
it can be seen along with the (evergreen) leaves. The flowers are
from pure white to light pink.
Can both be winter- and summer
