A Museum Quality Botanical Print of the Scarlet Flowered Antholyza, which has now been placed in the gladiolus family, it is a plant that grows in the sandy soils along beaches. This picture, which was originally published in the Botanical Magazine in 1796, shows a single stalk of the flower with numerous very dark red blooms. This popular botanical journal described the Antholyza Cunonia thus - Amidst that variety of tender bulbous plants which the Cape affords, none can boast a richer scarlet than the Antholyza here figured. It is easily propagated by offsets, or raised from seeds and blooms in April and May. This species is found wild in Persia as well as the Cape.
