Mimetes fimbriifolius - Tree Pagoda is the only
arborescent Pagoda on the Peninsula. At first glance or at a distance it might be confused
with the Tree Pincushion. However, it has only three glands on the leaf tip (not many) and
has hairy leaf margins.
A Peninsula endemic, Mi fimb occurs throughout the region. It has not yet been atlassed
ai Camps Bay, Oudekraaal or Red Hill. It is apparently becoming rare in the northern
Peninsula, perhaps because of too frequent burning. In a survey in 1982, Peter Ryan
estimated there to be about 30 000 plants. Whereas it appears to be more common at higher
altitudes in the north, in the southern Peninsula it is abundant quite close to the sea.
More seasonal data for especially November and December would be appreciated.
