This member of the Anthericaceae family was described by John Gilbert Baker in 1878. In 1936, Milne-Redhead mowed it to the Anthericum genera, but it has been mowed back. It is found in the Central and Eastern Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The stems will grow to four centimetres in diameter and 60 centimetres high, the flowers are white, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.
