The flowers of Dipogon lignosus grow in short, compact racemes on long peduncles from stem tips.
Flower colour varies from pink, mauve and magenta to purple. Several colours are present on the light coloured flowers in the photo taken at Onrus. In the corolla the banner is broad, the keel curving in claw-like. A flower measures about 1,5 cm across.
Flowering lasts all year round or only in its more prolific bloom season from late winter to midsummer, depending on conditions (Manning, 2007; Bean and Johns, 2005; Gledhill, 1981; www.plantzafrica.com).
