Leipoldtia schultzei can flower abundantly after rain during winter and spring. Many-flowered clusters are presented closely above the leaves. The flowers can be so close together that some are obscured from sight in the competition.
Buds may still push higher by elongating their pedicels to take precedence over neighbours. Leaves now play second fiddle until after flowering, while some young fruit capsules of early flowers are already ripening in the crowd, the early crop (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2015; Smith, et al, 1998; iNaturalist).
