Moraea bulbillifera

Name has been changed from “Homeria”.
This cormous perennial can be found in small patches in the Park but also can be seen along the N2 and near the Lakes from the Wilderness to Tsitsikamma reserve and inland on the old George-Knysna road. The stems often have clusters of little cormlets at the nodes. It grows just one long, narrow leaf and a flower stalk per year from its perennial corm. It is also slightly shorter than M. polyanthus.
