Lachenalia maughanii, Nieuwoudtville, South Africa

Lachenalia is a genus of bulbs in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Scilloideae,[2] which are usually found in Namibia and South Africa. Most of these plants have a dormancy period, and the new roots of these plants will always grow every year. Lachenalia is named after the Swiss botanist Werner de Lachenal (1736-1800).[3] Species are sometimes known as "Cape cowslip" though they are not directly related to the true cowslip Primula veris.

As of December 2012[update], the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 115 species:[1]

In addition, Lachenalia nordenstamii W.F.Barker was listed as "threatened" in the 2006 IUCN Red List,[4] but as of December 2012[update] the name was not accepted by the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families.[1]
