Mrs Margretha Wiese.

    

This member of the Asphodelaceae  family was described by Lisabel Irene Hall in 1984. It is found in the Cape Province of South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The swollen root can grow up to three centimetres in diameter, the whole plant up to seven centimetres high. The flowers are pale green and yellow.

Named after Mrs Margretha Wiese, the wife of Buys Wiese, owner of the farm Quaggaskop, South Africa, where the species was discovered. He told me, it former was supposed to be a variation of Bulbine mesembryanthemoides.
