  I heartily agree - this is a stunning plant. Saw it on road verges there
  last year, its bright red flowers (maroon is too dull!) easily visible from
  the car. But seeds should be gathered only when fully ripe and about to
  fall, if local regulations permit.

  > At the east end of the village that I live in, Tulbagh, South Africa,
  there is a stunning endemic maroon Babiana villosa which apparently only
  grows in this tiny area. Must I wait until the seeds are fully ripened
  before harvesting them or can they be picked green?
