Albuca osmynella

Albuca osmynella (syn. Ornithogalum osmynellum) is endemic to the Oograbies Hills, Namaqualand, Northern Cape, South Africa. It is a Red List species. The first three photos from Monica Swartz show the mounding bulbs and the strange branching flowers. The leaves of this species are spiral but these photos don't show that. The last photo by Pamela Slate shows the bulbs.
