The Common Sugarbush is since 200 years the national flower of South Africa. It was one of the first species of the rich Protea family, which Carl Linnaeus (in 1753) found and described. The honey-rich species is important for other endemic species in the biodiversity hotspot of the Cape Floristic Region, such as the Cape Sugarbird.
