Brunsvigia pulchra is a bulbous perennial of the Amaryllidaceae family. Previously known as Boophone pulchra, the specific epithet, pulchra meaning beautiful, places the emphasis appropriately in the choice of a named attribute.
The plant annually grows five to seven prostrate, broad, tongue-shaped leaves with red margins. The deciduous leaves do not coincide with the inflorescence. In flower the plant measures 30 cm in height. The individual flowers are funnel-shaped on sturdy brown pedicels, all bunched closely together, pointing upwards.
The specimen in picture presents a straight, erect scape and bracts that still clutch the flowers around the base. Some anthers on straight, pink, bunched filaments can be seen protruding well above the outwardly angled tepal tips (www.pacificbulbsociety.org).
