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 'albertii'

The name Eriospermum 'albertii' is  temporarily used until a proper description is done, or is found in archives.

Originally discovered by Gerhard Marx this Eriospermum is found west of Prince Albert. The leaves resemble Eriospermum capense to some degree but are distinctly greyish-green as compared to green of the latter. I have not found any reference to this plant in the thesis of Pauline Perry, but could  have missed it due to the large amount of data there.

The peduncle is distinctly succulent and by estimate only around 10 cm high. The yellow to maroon flowers are surprisingly attractive.
