Subject: [pbs] Haemanthus ID

I would guess its Haemanthus dasyphyllus from the Kamiesberg - The flower tells us nothing but if those are its leaves it answers to the description on page 106 of the Haemanthus revision  by Dr Dee Snijman.

"both surfaces light green with a few red bars ....  mostly covered with long soft white hairs"  Further on in the description the hairs are described  as "long, soft and shaggy"
