Truly one of the wonders of the CFR! Been wanting to see this in the wild for 20yrs! Resprouter to 1m tall, on south facing slopes on peaty but well drained rocky sands. Veld 12yrs old, About 100 plants at this locality, with scattered pine. Local endemic, all psubpos within about 4km of this point. No pollinators observed, but many flowers pirated (nectar robbed), presumably by carpenter bees.
