Drosanthemum bicolor

This spectacular species forms erect shrubs to 1 m tall and 1.5 m in diameter and is deservedly popular as a garden plant in suitable climates.
They occur in the Little Karoo, mainly in the  Ladismith-Montagu area on stony sandy soil. The flowers appear from September through December.
