Ästige Graslilie, Anthericum ramosum


Anthericum ramosum reaches on average 30–70 centimetres (12–28 in) of height. The grass-like leaves are 50 centimetres (20 in) long and two to six millimeters wide and are generally much shorter than the inflorescence. It has an erect, paniculate inflorescence. The flower spikes are branched (hence the Latin name ramosus). The six tepals are white, 10–13 millimetres (0.39–0.51 in) long, as the sixstamens. The flower is scentless and pure white, the anthers are bright yellow. The flowering period extends from June through August. The capsular fruit is spherical to three-faced. The flowers are pollinated by hymenopterans, while the seed distribution is done by the wind.
