Description

Forest lily (Veltheimia bracteata) is one of the showiest of the South African geophytes, plants that have some sort of storage organ to survive extended periods of drought. The showy, pink flowers are followed by large, flat, papery (when mature) seedpods that have adapted to wind dispersal. This genus is a tropical member of the hyacinth (Hyacinthaceae) plant family.

포레스트 백합은 남아프리카의 지중식물 중에서 가장 화려한 식물중의 하나입니다. 내부에 수분을 저장할 수 있어서 가뭄을 이겨낼 수 있습니다. 화려한 분홍 꽃이 지면, 크고 납작한, 종이같은 씨꼬투리가 곧 씨를 바람에 보낼 준비를 하며 핍니다.
