  1. Hi Lindelani

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook and sharing your observation.

    It’s so rewarding to be able to identify plants in their natural environment and we’re blessed to still have so many wilderness spaces in South Africa.

    Flourish!

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook.

    As far as I’m aware, they do not grow naturally in the Calvinia area.

    Flourish!
