Saw these for the first time on the farm last week. It doesn't look like the regular aanblommetjies H. falcate, but I don't know enough of the genus to get to a species.

Description:

Went specifically to see them in flower after Tygerberg CREW spotted them during their previous trip. I only saw about 10 plants, but I got there a bit late and missed that section of the survey. Likely, the numbers would be closer to 50 plants.

They grow on the rocky ridges which are not currently threatened, but there is no telling what future impacts might arise.

Description:

These pictures were taken early in the morning, about 5.00am. Sweetly scented. Two subspecies and a variety to chose from. The lady at the guesthouse was very excited about these and told me they grow only in one place in Calvinia - at a disused library in town.

I don't even know if I am right about it being a hesparantha, so I am not going to hazard a guess at the rest. :)
