Description:

From Ashley Nicholas PhD p 331. " P. multicaulis is distinct from almost all other species and is characterised by having many short dichotomously branched procumbent stems radiating from a narrow cylindrical fleshy deep-seated stem-tuber. The leaves are triangular and, often like the stems, crowded and pressed flat against the ground. The inflorescences are the only part of the plant that are held off the ground. The only other species that can be confused with P. multicaulis is P. flexuosa.." Did not dig up tuber but the rest agrees.
