Overview

Whenever this beautiful shrub is placed on our specimen table, it is often greeted with surprise as if it has never been seen before. It is easy to overlook, even when it is in flower, because it grows tall and presents its lovely white flowerheads above our heads.  This plant was previously known as Brunia albiflora. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
