Brunia noduflora (Bruniaceae), It is a tall, slender, single-stemmed but well-branched shrub, reaching 2-3 m in height. The long, slender branches are densely leafy, with beautiful dark green foliage that resembles a pine tree, but is much softer. The flowers are tiny, and are crowded into tight spherical knob-like inflorescences that are clustered into flat, rounded heads. They appear in late summer to autumn. Date of harvest : March 2010. Locality : Stellenbosch. Sowing : Sow seeds in autumn. Treating with smoke primer improves germination a lot. Use a well-drained, acidic medium suitable for fynbos plants e.g. roughly equal parts river sand and decomposed pine bark or well-rotted, manure-free compost and about 20% topsoil. Cover the seeds lightly, using the sowing medium and water gently to avoid disturbing the seeds. Keep moist but not wet. The seed should start to germinate in about six weeks.
