Octopoma quadrisepalum

Although this species and its sibling O. octojuge (see post 16 June this year) have the same general distribution area (Laingsburg, Ladismith and Swellendam), they never seem to grow together. It is a pity one does not see them in cultivation more often, as both are nice little shrubs (not more than 10 cm tall), with relatively big flowers. The photos were taken northeast of Montagu on the road to Anysberg on 30 October 2013. In the first picture you will also see Gibbaeum nuciforme.
