Gansbaai Heath Overview

A very special and beautiful plant that only occurs naturally in one place in the whole world. During the winter months, it transforms the landscape around Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in Gaansbaai, with a flush of pink. It is a fairly hardy coastal species that becomes covered in delicate flowers and would add colour and splendor to the garden during the usually drab winter time. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
