Zaluzianskya capensis

This annual or short lived perennial can be found along the pathways leading to Kingfisher Creek. The leaves are long and narrow, stalkless, toothed and covered with hairs. It is one of the sweetest night-blooming flowers in Steenbok with a delectable scent combining vanilla, marzipan and honey. The clusters of pure white pinwheel flowers are grouped at the tip of the stems. They are brushed with maroon on the reverse side of the petals. The buds resemble maroon drumsticks before opening leading to the common name of drumsticks.
