This member of the Asphodelaceae
family was given this name by Carl Ludwig von Willdenow. It is found in
the costal areas of South Africa, growing in a well drained soil
with some water and lots of sun. The bulb will grow up to two or three
centimetres in diameter, the plant up to 30 centimetres height. The
flowers are from yellow to orange.
After having dug up,
split, planted and handled many thousands of this plant I have to
admit: It is not really a caudiciform! Sorry!
