Cape Buttercup Overview

Known from only two localities, one recently discovered, this spectacularly large-flowered species is sadly frail in its magnificence, a shadow cast upon it by its Critically Endangered status. Fortunately, the recent discovery of a new locality may provide reason to believe that further suitable habitats exist for this species.
