Description:

Many of these plants are entirely dependent upon myrmecochory [= distribution of their fruits by ants] for fire survival in fynbos.
Spectacularly coloured pincushions that seem to flower for ever all over the Wankoe and the Stilbaai plains. Although there were a couple of Camponotus niveosetosus and even a Monomorium excelsior wandering around the inflorescences, all the ants on the ground were Anoplolepis steingroeveri.
