Description:

Tiny colony of about 5 plants, first observed in the early evening (flowers were fully open), but light conditions weren't favourable for photos, so follow-up pics were taken the next day just after 13h00, but the flowers were all closed, except for one that was just starting to open. This population probably won't be around for much longer - Acacia dealbata is invading the site badly, and saplings were seen only a metre away from the glads! The veld appeared to have burned during the preceding winter.
