Erica triste?

Die Hel
A mix of Pine plantation and Oak forest planted in Fynbos (with perhaps some Afromontane Forest in the Riveriine area): now heavily degraded fynbos with much invasion of forest trees (and in areas heavy infestation of Rhoicissus). An ideal outdoor laboratory for courses showing a wide variety of aliens, many only recorded here (a start? - the start!) as invasive. Because it does not burn or get mowed it has some quite unique invasives.
