Halleria elliptica (SA Tree List No. 670.2), the rock tree-fuchsia, is usually a shrub. It is similar to its better known and larger relative, H. lucida. Both trees are sometimes called kinderbessie (children berry) in Afrikaans.
H. elliptica has smaller flowers. It normally grows to a height of 2 m to 3 m. The shrub is common in the southern Cape coastal region, but also in some areas to the north, up to Malawi (Coates Palgrave, 2002).
