A solid black dot indicates where the species is found.

Serruria trilopha - Trident Spiderhead has an underground rootstock from which many robust, sprawling stems arise. The leaves are 3-7 tipped.

Se tril. is a flats species which may now be extinct on the Peninsula. Please look for it in the Tokai and Constantia Forestry areas. There were rumours that it had been seen on the new extension to Rondevlei! However, these probably refer to the planted plants at Rondevlei. Apart from these plants it appears to be extinct on the Cape Peninsula. Please feel free to visit these plants and record their flowering and growth.
