A small growing evergreen species from the eastern cape where it is very localised and seriously endangered
by overgrazing and domestic development. Fortunately it is easy in cultivation. Grows well with plenty of moisture
in summer and then drying out (slightly) through the winter.

Difficult to see with the naked eye, but just possible if you know what you are looking for and where it should be.
