Flower of the Day: Moraea tripetala
The Moraea tripetala is probably the first fynbos bulb to captivate me all those years ago. I was running down the drive and couldn’t believe this tiny Iris-like flower growing prolifically along the bank. The larger petals are smaller than my thumbnail and the colours are exquisite. Of course I wanted to know what it was, I started noticing other flowers and out of that has come this passion for fynbos.
