Ok, so here is a bit of a cheaky one but I cant help but put this beauty up for all to enjoy. As a staunch Western Province rugby supporter the red disa has always been one of my favourite flowers and is always worth the trek up Table Mountain or Fernkloof in Hermanus at this time of the year. It grows on wet cliffs and along streamsides and seeps from the Cederberg Mountains to Betty’s Bay and the Riviersonderend Mountains.
This year I found it at one of my favourite fynbos nurseries, Van den Berg Nursery at Kleinjoostenberg on the R304. This nursery is well worth a visit if you live in the Cape Town region and are looking for a wide range of reasonably priced indigenous plants.
