Flowers of the Berg

We went hiking in the Berg over the weekend and spotted this cycad (in the wild!) and these lovely watsonias (or so we think).

It looks like Watsonia pillansii. It occurs in rocky outcrops in grasslands and does occur in the Drakensberg area. As a matter of interest, it was grown as a cut-flower in Durban from the 1930’s to the 1960’s.
