The Bokkeveld Plateau is an area in the northwest Cape that includes Cape fynbos, mountain renosterveld and succulent karoo vegetation types. Near the town of Nieuwoudtville where there has been heavy grazing in the renosterveld there is a wonderful show of annuals and geophytes which have led it to be called the bulb capital of the world. Other species grow in the doleritic clay of the mountain karoo vegetation. Grazing has eliminated the shrubs so that the smaller plants have light. Most of the low rainfall occurs in winter and spring and the greatest display of wildflowers occur from August to September. In March the Amaryllidaceae make a spectacular display as well, flowering as the temperatures drop after summer showers and before their leaves appear. There is a lot of variation in the display of flowers depending on the rainfall received and when it is received.
