Description:

Wahlengergia androsacca is a favorite vegetable amongst Basotho when everything else has wielded. Under organic gardening and if left alone will provide pollen to bees from late autumn to mid-summer. Associated honey taste far better than fynbos honey which I began having a liking of.
