Tulbaghia galpinii

Endemic of a very restricted area of the Eastern Cape this is a diminutive self fertile Tulbaghia species with creamy-yellow perianth segments occasionally tinged pink with a deeply incised greenish-yellow corona.
The foliage is glaucous and filiform. It also produces disproportional sized seed heads from such a small flower.
For a few hours a day usually late afternoon/early evening it appears to be scented of my grannies blanket chest. [i.e. camphor with a touch of peppermint.] But maybe my nose had an off day.
Best viewed in pots with your spectacles on.
Early in flower from April onwards. [3-4"] 8-10cm. Winter dormant.
