Summer Flowers

Cape Honeysuckle Flora Plumbago

Early December saw many beautiful flowers everywhere… banks of cheerful yellow CANARY WEED (Senecia), PLUMBAGO (Plumbago auriculata), WEEPING BRIDE’S BUSH (Pavetta lanceolata) and CAPE HONEYSUCKLE (Tecomaria capensis) lined the roadsides making magnificent displays interwoven with various creeping species of JASMINUM.

Along one of the walkways in FOREST CAMP, a PELAGONIUM ACRAEUM had scrambled high into a RIVER EUPHORBIA (Euphorbia triangularis) along with a sky-blue PLUMBAGO making a very pretty sight.

In the forested areas of SIBUYA, one could see CAPE CHESTNUTS (Calodendrum capense)), COAST CORAL-TREES (Erythrina caffra), QUAR (Psydrax obvata) and various BOER-BOON TREES (Schotia) in flower.

On the ground, the CORAL ALOES (Aloe striata- sub-species komaggasensis)) and ‘WHITE’ CRASSULA (Crassula alba) were making a blazing statement in the brightest vermillion in various nooks and crannies.
