Peacock moraea Overview

The peacock moraea previously occurred in great abundance in the mass spring-flower displays of the Cape lowlands. Sadly, this attractive flower has lost more than 80% of its habitat to wheat fields and urban expansion, and only a few populations remain in isolated renosterveld fragments.
