The Bokkeveld Plateau is an area in the northwest Cape that includes Cape fynbos, mountain renosterveld and succulent karoo vegetation types. Plants photographed in this area from Bo-C, Boophone species through Cyanella species, are pictured below. More information about each species can be found on the appropriate genus page.
Boophone haemanthoides is found growing in sand or dolerite outcrops on coastal flats or upland slopes in the western Cape to the Bokkeveld Plateau. The first photo from Mary Sue Ittner of the leaves was taken near Nieuwoudtville August 2001. The second photo was taken by Cameron McMaster September 2011 near Nieuwoudtville.
Brunsvigia bosmaniae is found in the northwest and southwest Cape and in the Roggeveld on open flats, coastal sand, loam, or granite soils. Photos 1-2 of the leaves taken by Mary Sue Ittner and Cameron McMaster in the month of September near Nieuwoudtville. Photos 3-6 from Rachel Saunders taken near Nieuwoudtville April 2011.
Bulbinella eburniflora is an endemic to this area that grows on both clay and sand. Photos taken by Cameron McMaster September 2011 near Nieuwoudtville.
Bulbinella latifolia is found on seasonally damp sandstone or granite, rarely dolerite from Namaqualand to the western Karoo (winter rainfall areas.) Photos taken below from Cameron McMaster near Nieuwoudtville are probably a combination of ssp. doleritica and ssp. latifolia.
Bulbinella latifolia ssp. doleritica, one of the endemics, blooming in the Nieuwoudtville Reserve August 2001. Photo 1 by Mary Sue Ittner. The next three photos were taken by Cameron McMaster near Nieuwoudtville September 2011.

Chlorophytum undulatum is a rhizomatous geophyte to 50 cm. that grows on clay flats and slopes and in rocky places from Namaqualand to the Karoo and Stellenbosch, flowering July to October. Photos 1-3 taken by Mary Sue Ittner September 2006. Photo 4 taken by Cameron McMaster September 2011.
Corycium ingeanum is endemic to this area. Photos taken September 2006 near Nieuwoudtville of what I think is this species by Mary Sue Ittner. I suppose it could also be Corycium orobanchoides
Crinum variabile grows on rocky or sandy streambeds from the northwest Cape to the western Karoo. Photo taken near Nieuwoudtville September 2011 by Cameron McMaster.
Crossyne flava has strap-shaped leaves fringed with long, white or straw-colored bristles, with small, angular, red speckles beneath. The first photo by Mary Sue Ittner shows the leaves on plants growing near Nieuwoudtville August 2001. The second photo of the leaves was taken by Cameron McMaster in the Nieuwoudtville Reserve September 2011.
Cyanella alba photographs seen below were taken by Bob Rutemoeller and Mary Sue Ittner south of Nieuwoudtville September 2006. In the second picture it is growing with Moraea pritzeliana. The yellow flower seen in many of these photos is Ursinia nana.
