Parasitic plant producing deep red flowers in clusters that protrude above ground. Males and females produced on separate plants (dioecious). Not scented (at least not what humans can detect). Flowers comprise only 4 very dark maroon-coloured perianth lobes with inclined hairs covering most of their surface except for the margins. Confined to the Cape Peninsula (so far). This plant has only been available for study as a result of its discovery by amateur botanists.These piccies were taken after Jayne McDermid and Marland Holderness had found the plants and let me know about them.
