Moraea villosa    The Peacock Moraea or Moraea Villosa used to be prolific in mass spring flower displays of the Cape lowlands. This very attractive flower has now lost more than eighty per cent of its habitat to wheat fields and urban expansion, and only a few populations remain in isolated renosterveld fragments. This plant is classified as vulnerable. It is a large flowered species that is  easily cultivated in deep pots or raised beds and rock gardens.
