Description:

uncommon, to 50cm, on rocky sandstone slope in old veld; notes on this obs from C Whitehouse: "It is most likely a hybrid between Cliffortia obovata and Cliffortia crenata. It was described as a separate species by Weimarck as C. varians but the molecular work I did supported the supposed parentage and C. x varians would be a better way of denoting the cross."
