Historyalthough its common name is lily of the nile, this plant originates at the other end of the african continent, in south africa. Plants were brought to europe early on by traders who picked them up while replenishing supplies at the cape.

Lorethe long dry season of the south african veldt requires all plants to tolerate many months without rainfall in habitat.
