Confined to quartzite outcrops in Algoa Sandstone Fynbos, with 500-1000 plants growing here. The population is bisected by the N2 and some individuals occur in the road verge. Threatened by expanding wattle invasions (A. mearnsii and A. saligna), and potentially by cattle that graze in the area. The majority of the land in this area is earmarked for future residential and commercial development, which will be the most significant threat to the survival of this population. Listed as Critically Endangered and endemic to Nelson Mandela Bay Metro.
