The inflorescence of Dipcadi glaucum has raceme shape, growing on a thick, fleshy green scape. Below the pedicel of each flower a long, thread-like, yellowish bract is found, broad at the base and curving beyond the flower tip. The three blue-green outer tepals of these monocot flowers are at this stage hiding the inner flower parts, bulging at the base where the ovary has already achieved some size. The visible tepals can be seen attenuating to long narrow tips. The specific name, glaucum, reflects the blue-green flower and leaf colouring (iSpot).
