Notes for the Genus:

Bergeranthus

The genus Bergeranthus occurs only in the spring and autumn rainfall area of the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. Bergeranthus are distinguished by their triangular, smooth leaves and branching clusters of yellow flowers that open any time during the year. They also have thick rootstocks, which, when planted slightly above soil level, give the plant a bonsai-like appearance. Though they are summer growers, the plants require regular watering. They are also prone to red spider mites. The genus is considered to be in need of taxonomic clarification, because species merge and are difficult to distinguish. Plants are propagated by seed.
