The fragrant flowers of Eriospermum paradoxum grow on short pedicels in a dense, conical to cylindrical raceme close to the ground. There may be up to 40 flowers in one inflorescence. The star-shaped flowers have six narrow, white tepals with longitudinal lines, similar to Albuca, Chlorophytum or Trachyandra flowers.
The flowers appear in autumn, before the leaf that arrives with the winter rain and lasts until October. Long hairs cover the seeds of many Eriospermum species (Smith, et al, 1997; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Le Roux, et al, 2005).
