Description:

So, at the risk of over-extending my public engagement with the bonatea sp. on our farm, I thought I would share this new observation. I have located about 50 plants on the farm so far, all of which have been growing within an area of approximately 10 acres. I will compose a distribution map soon, as it has been inserting to see how they have tended to cluster in this one particular area of the farm.

Description:

Many seen in the reserve in damp conditions. Two Dierama species shown in Pacific Bulb Society website namely D. robustum and D. trichorhizum as having the diamond shaped nectar guides I plump for the former because it has more flowers per inflorescence even if the latter grows in damp conditions. But I am really not certain.
