   This member of the Amaryllidaceae family was given this name by Robert Allen Dyer in 1950. It is found in the south-eastern South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The caudex can grow to six centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five centimetres in height - 40 centimetres with the flowers, which are pink to red.

This Brunsvigia is close related to Brunsvigia radulosa, but it will flower in April - mid summer, according to Cameron McMaster.
