IDM Cape Peninsula - Narrow-leaf Sugarbush - Protea neriifolia

A solid black dot indicates where the species is found.

Protea neriifolia - Narrow-leaf Sugarbush differs from the Black-bearded Sugarbush in that the hairs below the beard are white and the bracts are all similar.

Although it is not indigenous to the Peninsula, Pr neri has been planted at many places and atlassers should carefully check between the two species which are otherwise very similar.  The records from Devil's Peak, Lion's Head, Fish Hoek, Kirstenbosch, Silvermine and St James are noted as planted.  The records from Tokai Manor and Swartkopberg require verification.  Does it occur anywhere else and is it a problem anywhere?
