This delicate white wetland poker is so rare that it is now known from only one locality in Kwazulu-Natal, and does not even have a common name. Unless drastic conservation measures are taken immediately this species could become extinct. They are relatively small, growing to about half a metre. Tufts of green strap-shaped leaves and the flower stalks are about 50 cm in height and bear pinkish/greenish buds which open from the base of the inflorescence into white tubular flowers with conspicuous yellow anthers. Plants would make a delicate addition to a small wetland mixed with low-growing sedges.
