Distribution map

H. bayeri occurs from Oudtshoorn in the west till Uniondale in the east. It remains usually solitairy, so propagation should be done by seeds or leaf cuttings. In cultivation it grows witout any problems. Plants from Rooinek Pass were described as H. marxii. Recently was found intersting "most Western" form of bayeri at Saffraanrivier, where it grows very close to H. picta (and H. cooperi "rooibergensis'). It is not typical form of it, it belongs more to 'jadea' or truteriorum type.

In cultivation H. bayeri grows without major problems and belongs to one of the most attractive plants. Propagation should be done by seed or leave cuttings. Although it is known for a long time, it is still very requested.

I think the plants at the Rooinek Pass locality are marxii, not bayeri

Thanks for comment - yes, you are right. I haven´t updated this article for a while and in the mean time H. marxii from Rooinek Pass was described.
