The flowers of Hessea breviflora appear in a large, dense umbel of small pink or white flowers in autumn. In this photo several umbels can be seen blooming together on top of one clump of bulbs. The six tepals of each flower are similar in the inner and outer whorls of three each, narrowly oblong with margins slightly curving in or turned up and tapering to angular tips. Spreading dark coloured anthers and white styles can be seen in the open flowers. Note that there still are buds that will open later.
It is good to know that early in the 21st century the population of these plants in nature is considered to be stable (iSpot; www.redlist.sanbi.org).
