Overview

When hiking up Table Mountain in midsummer to find the red disa, Disa uniflora, in flower, one is sure to also see the brilliant red crassula, Crassula coccinea, hanging from the cliffs. If lucky, and patient, one will also see the mountain pride butterfly, Aeropetes tulbaghia, which pollinates both. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
