Dyschoriste rogersii, commonly the bushveld ribbon flower or in Afrikaans the blou bosklapper (blue bushcracker), is a small, hairy shrub reaching 60 cm in height and spreading. The mainly summer flowering season is long, the flowers short-lived. They attract butterflies.
The species distribution is in the northeast of South Africa, in Mpumalanga and Limpopo. It is not a South African endemic, also found in Swaziland and Zimbabwe, maybe more widely. Blundell (1985) describes a Dyschoriste species in Kenya very similar to D. rogersii.
The habitat is open, grassy woodland, thriving in full sun and semi-shade where conditions are often hot and dry. The species is not considered to be threatened in its habitat early in the twenty first century (www.sntc.org.sz; https://wildflowernursery.co.za; http://redlist.sanbi.org).
