A bit of trivia

Spotted these at the Operation Wildflower site
The name spear-leaved milkwort for this species was recorded as long ago as 1796 in an edition of the Botanical Magazine (London).

There is an orchid , Disperis capensis that resembles P. bracteolata to such an extent that the orchid is also pollinated by the Polygala pollinator! Plant law, unlike its human counterpart, is not compulsively litigious; plant competitiveness for resources and space is fierce, but without fights or grudges (Wikipedia; Bean and Johns, 2005; www.plantzafrica.com)

Posted these (not my best shots):

and to compare

both species may be found at Cape Point
