Description:

Just as one enters the path to Midmar Dam ame Park, in rubble. There seems to be confusion about the name. The plant list and PlantXAfrica only recognise up to species level while RedList recognises T. v. subsp. violacea and iSpot often has ID as T .v. var. v.. makes searching for palnt hard and the link from the RedLiat returns a null result.

ALLIACEAE, Least Concern, Monocotyledons, Tulbaghia violacea
