Chinese Lantern Bush

Chinese Lantern Bush (Nymania capensis)

While this is definitely an endemic species of the Little Karoo in South Africa, the common name refers to the shape of the seedpod. Many have tried to cultivate this in their gardens with little success. They are a spectacular sight on the road between George and Oudtshoorn
