Freylinia visseri is a threatened plant from the Velddrif and Hopefield area in the Strandveld on the west coast of South Africa.
The naming of the plant after Mr. Floors Visser who planted four specimens in 1954 is warranted, as the plants in cultivation today, as well as those reintroduced in the original area of their known habitat, all come from those four specimens.
The shrub grows to 3 m, has oblong leaves and pink tubular flowers in spring. The plants grow in Strandveld habitat, i.e. in loose sandy soil found in a specific part of the west coast (www.plantzafrica.com).
