KAROO VIOLET

Karoo violet

During a brief visit to the Karoo recently, I was struck by the swathes of dark blue to purple flowers that hugged the ground as we walked through the veld. The locals identified them as Karoo violets (Aptosimum procumbens) – such unexpected beauty in that dry countryside!
