The Plant Parade: Florals challenge for May 2017

Hi everyone I'm hosting this month's challenge.
My theme is any flower that is indigenous to Southern Africa. Additional photos from the RIL are more than welcome. I hope there is something that you fancy and am looking forward to seeing your beautiful artwork.
Do remember the reveal date is the 25th of this month and not before then.
Any medium may be used. Please let us know the size too.
The River Crinum grows in our garden

The Falling stars are from the family Crocosmia

Zantedeshia or Golden arum is indigenous to the Eastern Transvaal

There are many different types of aloes. This one also grows in my garden

Thanks for Hosting the May Plant Parade Christel. Great selection of flowers to choose from!

For those members who haven't seen it yet, I've just posted Kay's April Bouquets Gallery. Sorry I'm late with posting it, but do have a look - the entries are beautiful!

Re: Florals challenge for May 2017

Thanks Christel, for taking us on this challenge to SA! .. must confess I could think of the protea only at first - ........ is the African violet/St Paulia also a native?
