Bulb: Chinkerinchee (Ornithogalum seineri)

Unread post by ingrid1968 » Fri Sep 19, 2008 4:43 pm

Please can someone identify these flowers for me?

Although I visit the park quite often, I just go where my navigator tells me to, so I'm not quite sure where we encountered these :redface: . This was during the beginning of November 2007. They simply covered the place for almost 10 kilometres as we were driving. I've never seen anything flowering so prolifically!

Could I have help in identifying this plant, seen at the Girivana Waterhole in the Satara area.
