Erica pillansii

Occurring in the Kogelberg at around 270 metres, predominantly on the slopes of Dot’s Dash, leading up to Spooknek, this spectacular erica has been virtually absent for the past five years, since being wiped out by fire in 2011.  It has now fully recovered and can be seen at its best in mid April when the scarlet flowers make for a wonderful spectacle.
