   This member of the Amaryllidaceae family was given this name by NNN in YYY. It is found in the higher altitude regions 1500-2200 metres, from the Northern Cape to Eastern Cape; Eastern South Africa and some recordings suggest southern Botswana. It grow in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to CCC centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to CC centimetres in height. The flowers are pink to red.

This Brunsvigia is close related to Brunsvigia gregaria, but will flower in (December-) January-February; early summer, according to Cameron McMaster.

The species name; raduosa refers to the roughness of the leaves.
