Unusual cream to yellow flowers instead of the more common off-white and they were startling against the ominous dark grey clouds. The common name originated in Camferskloof, when we made the mistake of coming down a slope that was covered with this viciously sharp Metalasia. We and our clothes were torn to ribbons. An expensive sun hat is still lying somewhere in amongst these very unfriendly plants.
