A pretty little deciduous bulbous plant from grasslands in eastern South Africa, sporting sprays of tiny pale pinky mauve flowers in spring amongst neatly striped olive green leaves. Hardy in well drained soil in sun, or would look good in a shallow container. A good plant for a cool well lit windowsill where the flowers can be better observed.
