A dense, dome-shaped cluster (or group of cymes) of stem-tip flowers of Limeum africanum subsp. africanum makes quite an impression. Flat on the ground, the flowers leave no space for anything else to be visible among them.
The plant creeps over the sand, producing leaves and dense flower clusters at stem nodes. The numerous green and white flowers appear before the general spring flowering of the region and last until early spring.
Game and stock favour this highly palatable plant (Le Roux, et al, 2005; Manning and Goldblatt, 1996; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; JSTOR; iNaturalist).
