Some of the pointed Baeometra uniflora leaves spread, similar to those of their Colchicum relatives, while others may be erect around the peduncle of the flower as in the photo. Up to eight channelled leaves are grown in opposite arrays or somewhat spirally arranged.
From one to five flowers appear on the stem, all facing up. The specific name, uniflora meaning one flower is surprising. Yellow corolla colouring is presented inside the flower once the tepals spread and also reveal the black eye in the centre.
There are six stamens and a superior, three-loculed ovary topped by three short, hook-like styles. The flowers are not fragrant. They are pollinated by monkey beetles that consume pollen, not nectar. There are no nectaries (Curtis-Scott, et al, 2020; Manning, 2007; Bean and Johns, 2005; iNaturalist).
