Tsitsikamma Cliff Vygie Overview

A rare endemic of the coastal cliffs of the Tsitsikamma National Park. Its mat-forming habit makes it a great ground cover, especially for seafront, water-wise, fynbos gardens, and it is covered in pink to white flowers in spring and summer, that attract honeybees.
