Having been intrigued by the different colours displayed in a group of six Acrolophia ustulata, found in Fernkloof, we revisited there this morning to try to get better photographs. At first we found 4 separate plants with dark maroon flowers, but could not locate the group of 6. We spent half an hour searching, before eventually finding them right where I thought they should be! It just shows how difficult it is to see these tiny plants.
Anyway, the upshot of it all was that we found no less than 10 plants in a small area of around 10 sq. metres, which was really exciting, and testimony to the fact that there are probably many more around. Furthermore, we were able to conclusively show three distinct colours; maroon, yellow and brick-red, so were well pleased with our effort.
