I still have a load of pictures of unidentified indigenous plants. I saw this at the indigenous plant fair in Durban on Saturday but don’t know what it is. Any ideas? Sonya, I think you may have bought one 😉

    Hi There
    I think that it’s Polygola myrtifolia. You can read up some more about it here: https://www.plantzafrica.com/plantnop/polygalamyrt.htm

    Polygala myrtifolia. Very useful shrub! Waterwise, you can shape it for a hedge, a standard or abush. Flowers a long time and is tough. Two varieties available, one smaller and more compact. Indigenous, mostly in the Fynbos biome, but not restricted to it.
