Haemanthus crispus

Yeah, yeah, I know this is not a succulent, but as most succulentophiles like other plants as well, I decided to smuggle this one in for a change. If you don’t like what you see, you can just move on.
This bulbous plant occurs abundantly throughout Namaqualand from Steinkopf southwards to the Olifants River.
The photos were taken between Garies and Hondeklipbaai on 31 March 2012. The beautifully undulated leaves are usually present  from March till October.

  1. I have Haemanthus sanguineus in the garden and it is a lovely surprise when they pop up. Your photo catches their strange loveliness.
