Erica verticillata
Erica verticillata was thought to be extinct until a specimen was found in the gardens at Kirstenbosch. Extensive detective work by Anthony Hitchcock led to more varieties being rediscovered, and the plant was eventually re-introduced in various rehabilitated wild spaces around Cape Town. Wendy painted this picture of the plant.
