The Botanical Society of South Africa has an Outing Report on a trip some of their members took to see Blushing Brides in the wild of the Franschhoek mountains. (scroll down approx halfway on that page)

They make some very interesting points about wilderness sustainability, past conservation mistakes and evolving botanical understanding of local ecologies.
.....very humbling to think that out of the whole world, the species is only found naturally in a few colonies spread out over a couple of kilometres.

Viv - I misspelt Franschhoek before, too.
