The Massonia echinata under discussion are presumably winter-growing. Does 
anyone have the diminutive, high altitude one from the Drakensberg, which 
may or may not be M. echinata? I have only seen it at 3000 m (10,000') in 
the gravel at the top of Ben MacDhui (the highest point of South Africa on 
the Eastern Cape border with Lesotho). The whole plant is no more than about 
5 cm (2 in) across (and that's a large one).
