Example:

Ixia rapunculoides - Iris family

Blue ixia (E), bloukalossie (A) (Resembling a rampion, Campanula, in its flowers)

Slender cormous perennial, 15-70 cm high. Leaves narrowly sword-shaped. Flowers on wiry stems, often with side branches, funnel-shaped, blue or mauve, 10-15 mm diam.

Habitat: Mainly clay soils in renosterveld.


Sparaxis tricolor
- Iris family

Harlequin-flower (E), fluweeltjie (A) (Latin tricolor, three-coloured, referring to the flowers)

Cormous perennial, 10-30 cm high. Leaves sword-shaped. Flowers orange with a large yellow and black cup and with yellow anthers, 35-40 mm diam.

Habitat: Seasonally moist stony clay flats in renosterveld, often along streams.

Notes: This and the next species, along with Sparaxis pillansii, were the parents that have given us the wide range of commercially grown sparaxis hybrids. All three of these species are found in the wild only around Nieuwoudtville.

Sparaxis elegans - Iris family
Streptanthera, pale harlequin-flower (E), spogfluweeltjie (A) (Latin elegans, elegant)

Cormous perennial, 10-20 cm high. Leaves sword-shaped. Flowers salmon pink or rarely white with a purple cup edged in black and yellow and with coiled, purple anthers, 40-50 mm diam.

Habitat: Clay flats in renosterveld.
