Strawberry Spiderhead Overview

Serruria aemula once occurred in huge stands on the Cape Flats near Cape Town from Milnerton to Rondebosch. Sadly this beautiful species has been reduced by farming and urban development, to a few populations along road reserves and under power lines totalling about 1 000 plants. Unless there is urgent and appropriate field management of the few remaining natural populations, this species will become extinct in the wild within the next few decades. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
