Charlies Stirton. Aspalathus florifera/ A bowieana

A. florifera has light lemon-yellow flowers 1-4 per axil and many on a branch usually with some pink flushing, standard hairless on the front whereas A. bowieana has pubescence on the front apex of the standard. Its flowers are larger and darker yellow 1 per axil and fewer on a shoot. A. bowieana also has soft er leaves and shorter less pointed calyx teeth.
Tricky to name Aspalathus when no close-ups of detached views of the flower, especially side view are available (almost mandatory in legumes for accurate naming).
