Synonyms:
Common names:
Frequency: Widespread
Status: Native
Description:
The most distinctive features are the spotting on both leaf surfaces on the mature plants, and the lax racemes. The leaves are pale grey-green basally, with reddish-brown spreading from the tip as the leaf ages, covered with a translucent bloom.
The plant from the Kabompo Gorge was identified by Reynolds as A. milne-redheadii, although the leaves are unspotted. Leach considered it to be intermediate between A. milne-redheadii and A. mzimbana, but was inclined to favour the latter (Williamson). Carter retains it in A. milne-redheadii.
