The outer tepal surfaces of the Sparaxis grandiflora subsp. fimbriata flowers shown here are purplish in colour. A dark longitudinal line running along the central axis of the tepal is extended laterally in variable, softer shades, fading to white. The insides of the corollas are white. Some slightly sickle-shaped leaves may be noted (iSpot; www.pacificbulbsociety.org).
