South Africa’s national flower is a reflection of the depth and beauty of the whole country. It is worth a hike into the mountains to see them growing in their natural environment and this is the best time of the year to do it. I have seen quite on various routes in Table Mountain recently.
You could not find better examples than these anywhere. These stunning photographs were taken by a friend hiking in the Kromrivier area, du Toit’s Kloof. No wonder they made it our national flower.
Of course if you can’t make it into the mountains you can see them in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
