Bulbine spongiosa (Asphodelaceae), a geophyte endemic to sheer rock faces of Olifantsrivier, Badspoort (Western Cape), South Africa, is described. Tubers proliferate filling crevices.

The description of this taxon forms part of an extensive survey of cliff-dwelling succulent and bulbous-succulent taxa in South Africa and Namibia (Van Jaarsveld, 2011). Source
