This is the most profuse flowering we have enjoyed of this aptly named Lily.
When if first appears from the rounded crust at ground level it looks like a paint brush as it grows until the flower burst open. The New Holland Honeyeaters love the nectar in these flowers and because of the tropical rain event we enjoyed last month they are looking splendid. Autumn, Mount Pleasant, Adelaide Hills. Sth. Aust.
