Hypoxis aurea is
a perennial herb growing in forest edges or grasslands in
mountainous regions. Its short stem emerges a bundle of linear
leaves, 10-25cm in length and 2-4mm in width. Flower stalks are
delicate, measuring 5-10cm in length, set single, rarely two,
flowers on the tips; the perianth segments, 6 in number, 4-6mm in
length, have long hairs, especially abundant on the tip portions.
Bloom time: April-June.
