The flowers of Eriospermum zeyheri grow in a many-flowered raceme between midsummer and early autumn. Inflorescences stand up to 50 cm tall; the individual flower pedicels are short, less than 8 mm in length. The flowers in picture are no longer open, April being past their blooming season.
E. zeyheri plants are found in the Little Karoo east of Barrydale and through the Eastern Province to Grahamstown. They normally grow on lower clayey slopes in a variety of veld types (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; www.pacificbulbsociety.org).
