Wachendorfia paniculata Butterfly Lily, Rooikanol
Butterfly Lilies are perennial plants. The leaves are in a loose fan and oriented edgewise to the stem. The flowers are in a cylindrical or open panicle on a semi hairy stem. The flowers are yellow to brownish, with dark markings on the base of the upper three tepals.
These plants can be found on damp slopes and flats in southwestern South Africa, flowering best after a fire.
I took the following photos in the West Coast National Park in 2015.
