Plate 58: C. graminicola Verdoorn
Fig. 58: Crinum graminicola Verdoorn, and a number
of associated forms are found about the grasslands of the Mid and North
Transvaal. Gordon McNeil had quite a collection of native Crinum. We
attempted to have his garden recognized as a national heritage, but his
property is now part of a native reserve, and the natives are inclined to
use all bulbs for medicinal purposes, whether beneficial or toxic.
