Found this at Grootscholten, but it is much bigger.

   This lovely little member of the Hyacinthaceae family was described by Winsome Fanny Baker in 1873. It is found from Namaqualand to Swellendam in the gravel of shallow pockets on the rockfaces. It only receives a little amount of water, but lots of sun. The bulb will grow up to one centimetre in diameter, the plant up to six centimetres height.

It looks like Dutch fields of tulips, but it only cowers half a square meter. I wish I was aloud to bring a few bulbs home.
