The fire razed veld in the Circular Drive area of the Cape Point reserve continues to beguile. It’s become an exhibition arena for plants which are usually crowded out by the dominant ericoids, proteoids and restionaceae. And nature’s moving along smartly here with a fabulous showing of these geophyte paintbrush lilies / April fool flowers. Each day brings further rewards as they bloom forth in prolific form.
It’s interesting to note that this species of Haemanthus blooms profusely after fire.
