Polygala …???


Yes, appears so.


Polygala is accurate.


My understanding of the Eden project is each bio dome holds plants from a different county.

It would be most helpful to know what dome your plants were  found in.
Was it the South Africa zone one.???

Flowering right now in our new South African Veld, Polygala myrtifolia, Watsonia pillansii and Nerine bowdenii

It was the Rainforest Biome Dome.


Looks different from Polygala myrtifolia. Leaves look unique !


Polygala fruticosa?
or Polygala cordifolia?

This looks matching.
