Bursts onto the scene in spring with purple chocolate scented flowers. A native Australian bush tucker plant with edible tubers and deliciously chocolate scented edible flowers. In summertime the plant dies down in the heat and remerges after rain in autumn. Plant along borders and in massed plantings as naturalised drifts. The grassy tuft has sprays of flowers, each individual flower lasts for a short time.
I look for this scented flower as I walk in bush wildflower meadows during spring through to early summer
