African Amaryllis

This is the flower of an indigenous garlic called Tulbaghia or Silver Lace. While it looks delicate, it is said to be a hardy plant. It was named after Ryk Tulbagh, a governor of The Cape of Good Hope. OBSERVATION: They say that God created order. This is, however, a somewhat disordered blossom. There are some flowers in our veld which are chaotic.
