Of the more than 175 species of Disa, the vast majority are native to tropical and South Africa. Called the “Pride of Table
Mountain”, Disa uniflora is by far the most striking and important species and parent in the genus. Flowering occurs over
a long period from December to March and mature plants can carry an inflorescence up to a meter tall. Disa plants are
exceptionally intolerant of poor water quality and have a fairly narrow range of cultural conditions making them singularly
susceptible to habitat loss as global climate changes.
