Ledebouria is a genus of deciduous or weakly evergreen bulbs and found in India, Madagascar, and Africa (mostly southern Africa). It is found mostly in areas of summer rainfall in subtropical savannas and grasslands in the eastern and northeastern parts of southern Africa. There are a few species found in winter rainfall areas as well.
