Site #47

Paul Hoekman

Identifier of this site

A couple aloes have already been planted here, but imagine planting vygies and other colourful plants along the whole side!

Why is this important?

This site is located in Rosebank. Rosebank is located in close proximity to Table Mountain, and there is a lot of potential to create 'stepping stones' within the area that allow animals (like birds) to come down from Table Mountain and expand their territory, possibly connecting with other areas in the region. However, in order to have a funcional network of stepping stones it is important that the right species are planted throughout the neighbourhood, and that there are sufficient green sites in the area.

We have indexed the following species at this site:

  • Aloe ferox - Bitter aloe
  • Aloe perfoliata - Rubble Aloe
  • Photos

    Below is the list with the different species that can be grown on this site. These species would contribute to the greening of , and would fit in with a wider greening strategy for Cape Town. However, this vision is only a proposal and we invite you to comment on it. Are there any other species that would do well? Are there particular uses for this site that we should take into consideration? Do you have a spectacular vision for the plot? Do you have any ideas to involve the wider community? Please let us know!
