was listed on the South Africa Red Data List as endangered in 2009. This is due to pressures exerted on its limited habitat by mining activities and climate change. Only nine localities still exist and are associated with felsite and underlying coal deposits. When the locality of a sub-population of 4000 plants became threatened by coal mining activities, the plants were translocated to suitable habitats. Approximately 1000 plants were distributed to botanical gardens for conservation purposes, which included the garden of the North-West University. The purpose of the monitoring project was to determine and compare the survival rate of material with that of populations. Thus far it has been established that populations are more stable, although the population numbers show better fecundity.
