Watsonia Transvaalensis
The Watsonia has a depressed globose corm, growing on several generations of old corms, which have a rather sparse fibrous covering. The four leaves are rigid in texture and sword-shaped, the lowest one being the longest and up to 90 cm in length. The peduncle may be 1 m or more in length and the flowers vary in shape and colour. The petals are sometimes pointed and are near-white, pale pink, old rose, salmon and terracotta in colour, each with a centred dark pink line. The flowering time of this plant is from October to November.
Found in abundance in favourable localities. Grows widely in grassveld areas in the Northern Province.
