I saw this plant in the Silvermine section of TMNP near the end of July. It was next to the path just above the dam, about 30cm in height.

Would this be a Watsonia Angustifolia?
Your help will be much appreciated. :pray:


Gladiolus bonaespei... endemic to Table Mountain...

I'm finding it a bit hard to identify the plant from the pictures taken... but my best guess would be Metalasia cephalotes. hope it helps. :P

Greetings,
Today is May 3 2011 and I am new to this Forum. I would like to learn to identify the indigenous flowers in the Western Cape, particularly those between and around Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope.
Are there any forum members knowledgable in the Cape Flora available to give me some tips as to where to begin?
Thank you.
