some Veltheimia bracteata

Thanks for that insight, Pieter. It seems a number of plants that have
yellow or white flower morphs also have foliage that lacks characteristic
red tinge or markings. I've seen some euphorbias like this.

Someone did mention to me once that white and/or yellow V. capensis has been
seen. Maybe it was Ernst van Jaarsveld. Any intrepid collector (like Ernst)
would have gathered it if at all possible, maybe it was an inaccessible
plant or was lost in cultivation. Something to dream of!
