Dear Mary Sue
A late reply - we've been away again!
Romulea hallii grows in a very cold area around Sutherland and in winter
grows in seasonally wet places which may freeze at night.  During the day it
warms up a fair amount, so they would never be frozen for long.  In summer
the soil is rock hard and as dry as a bone, except for very occasional
thunder storms.
We have seen it in various places, and as the revision says, it flowers very
early - in July usually, which is mid-winter still.
It is a beautiful thing - we rarely see it in flower as we forget to go and
look so early in the season, but when we make the effort, it is worth it.
