Ecologie et distribution
Afr. Trop.
Biologie : Rhizomatous geoxylic suffrutex with very long branched rhizomes 4-8 mm Ø;
  see more in the book
Ecologie : Edges of dambos, on sandy, especially seasonally waterlogged oligotrophic soils and on Kalahari sands, where trees are absent, forming large patches not touched by cattle; secondary grassland following destruction of woodland by fire and cultivation; etc.
  Very variable in leaf shape: from very narrow to very broad; in general vigour and in position of inflorescence.
  Namibia, Botswana, S. Africa (Transvaal, Natal, Swaziland).
  Comprises 2 subspp. (subsp. incohata in the coastal plain of SE part of area with Diospyros lycioides, D. galpinii, Hyphaene natalensis, Syzygium cordatum, Garcinia livingstonei, at 0-100 m alt.).
  Seems to be the most abundant and most widely distributed species among the geoxylic suffrutices. Closely related to the sympatric P. curatellifolia (a woodland species) but true intermediates do not seem to occur.
