This specimen of Ledebouria ovatifolia was photographed in Gauteng grassland. Ledebourias are common in open grassland in big parts of southern Africa and are sometimes recognizable by leaf markings, more certainty possible when checking the shape of the bulbs. There is also a species known as Ledebouria ovalifolia found in the Western and Eastern Cape Provinces.
Ledebouria ovatifolia occurs from the Eastern Cape to tropical Africa as well as in Asia, as far as Sri Lanka! It grows in stony grassland to altitudes around 1980 m. The large purple leaf spots are distinctive (www.pacificbulbsociety.com; Carruthers, 1990).
