The graceful hairbells are one of our most loved native plants; these perennial herbs have evergreen grass-like foliage, with slender, wiry stems from which clusters of funnel-shaped flowers in various shades of pink to mauve, will be found dangling. Tyson’s hairbells differ from most of the hairbells, in having upright flowers. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal.
