This an old blog that I am reviving at the moment. My home made websites work well and I would like to continue with them. Blogger however is so easy to deal with now and saves a lot of time. I shall therefore place posts here and may transfer some to my other websites later that are better indexed for specific searches. The indexing/content of the old posts need to be improved - Will work on it bit by bit. You are welcome to leave comments - unfortunately I cannot reply to them as it causes Firefox errors.


Eriospermum dielsianum ssp. dielsianum affinity - East of Albertinia

Eriospermum dielsianum ssp. molle differs from the typical variety in that the flesh is pink whereas ins ssp dielsianum it is white. The ssp. molle has a coastal distribution. The leaves are usually densely covered with hairs and the flesh is reddish.

Although the plants from east of Albertinia occur in the coastal area and in therefore in the distribution area of ssp molle, the flesh of these bulbs is white and I take them to be ssp. dielsianum. The flowers are white and similar to those of the species.
