One of the latter is Othonna capensis, a ground-hugging creeper with fat green leaves and small bright-yellow daisy flowers.
Our plant of Veltheimia capensis has remained single, while Veltheimia bracteata has increased to form a good-sized clump.
The blooming time for Colletia cruciata is in the fall, and our plant at the Ruth Bancroft Garden bears white flowers in October and November.
