Description:

A prostrate shrub up to 70cm tall and 3m across. It has a single main stem and many trailing stems. We cheated and put in 2 pics of a flower, when in fact they were over. It is Redlisted as Endangered. Small, severely fragmented populations continue to decline because of too frequent fires. Climate change models predict a reduction of at least 50% by 2025. This is a high altitude species growing on rocky outcrops on the Swartberg and Kammanassie Mts. The decline is especially noticeable in the Kammanassie.
