Moraea loubseri

27th March 2011

A very beautiful species from South Africa. It was discovered on a granite hillside near Langebaan in 1973 and a couple of years later the site was developed for granite quarrying. The plant still occurs there in unused ground, and it is secure in cultivation.
In collections in warmer parts of the world it has become a bit of a pest - I will be perfectly happy if it seeds around a bit here.
