Dwarf Pincushion - Leucospermum gerrardi is a
dwarf shrub with a woody rootstock, and producing erect stems seldom exceeding 0,4 m tall,
giving a cushion appearance. The leaves are linear to oblanceolate with raised veins.
Ls gerr is the only Pincushion known from Swaziland. It appears to be largely
confined to the Malolotja Nature Reserve, where it is invariably associated with
soapstone. It co-occurs with both Pr simplex and Pr parvula, so
look out for these species around the populations.
Where else do soapstones occur in Swaziland?
