This white-flowering form of Lobelia pubescens can be seen spreading over damp rocky ground in semi-shade in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve at Hermanus; typically the habitat of the species.
The stems grow to 50 cm and are hairy. The leaves are lance-shaped to ovate, toothed and petiolate, i.e. they have stalks.
Flowering begins in spring and continues to the beginning of autumn although, when conditions permit, there may be blooms all year round. The picture was taken in December.
The species distribution lies along the south coast of South Africa (Manning, 2009; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984).
