About 3 weeks ago we went to the top of the Hantamsberg witha g roup of
American tourists, and we found Romulea hantamensis in full flower.  What a
beautiful little plant and it grows in sheets in water logged places.  There
is a radio mast on the top of the moutain, and on it is a warning about
falling ice.  Apparently mist and rain freeze on the aerial, and then fall
off in chunks!  So that plant really gets cold, and it is no wodner that the
seeds need stratification!
