This member of the Hyacinthaceae
family was described by William Henry Harvey in 1884. It is found in
Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of
sun. The bulbs are 1,5 centimetres in diameter, the slim leaves will
reach for seven centimetres. The flowers are white to pale pink.
The species name from Greek
lithos; 'stone' and Greek anthos; ' flower', because
flowers are produced directly from the bulb, which look like a
stone. The species name means 'very small'.
