Description and diagnostic features
It is the smallest of the Aristea spp and has the same bright blue flowers as the others. It is a lily with its 6 petals.
The whole plant is used.
It is a superb antibiotic for pain and infection of the female organs. I have seen it work where the doctors antibiotics and other herbs I tried did not work.
It grows where there is shallow soil that flows with water in winter in the mountains of the Western Cape.
It produces lots of seed.
