Ledebouria coooperi is found throughout South Africa and grows in wetland habitats. Flower colour varies from green to purple and the leaves also show a range of patterns of purple spots and stripes. It divides very freely and plants in cultivation in the UK seem to belong to a single clone or strain with parallel purple lines on the underside of the leaves and striking pink flowers.
