Agelanthus natalitius subsp. zeyheri, previously Tapinanthus natalitius and also T. zeyheri at another time, is a parasite commonly found on Senegalia caffra and other trees in the Magaliesberg.
The plant or part tree can be a beautiful plant in itself. While the birdlime bush, sometimes kills off host trees and might be removed from cherished garden trees, they might also be left alone as they’re pretty! Nothing lasts forever and after all, they’re part of nature.
The subspecies distribution is in the north of South Africa, in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Gauteng, North West and KwaZulu-Natal. It is not considered to be threatened in its habitat early in the twenty first century (http://redlist.sanbi.org).
