Not really sure I have the right genus even. Rosettes are less than 5cm high but appear to proliferate - not just this plant but most of the plants I saw.

Appeared at house. No mistaking it but too quick to get a photo. Presumably an escapee from somewhere.

Looks superficially like Erica barbigeroides, which grows nearby (see https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19549676), but occurs in slightly drier habitat. Comparative photos included, Erica russakiana anthers on left, Erica barbigeroides on right - note appendages on Erica russakiana. Flowers of Erica russakiana on left, Erica barbigeroides on right. Note longer tube of Erica barbigeroides, with bracts and bracteoles about twice as long as the non-hairy calyx. Erica russakiana, bracts and bracteoles about same length as calyx. Both calyx and bracteoles with long hairs.

Description

I thought this would be Mimetes capitulatus but the pollen presenter appears to be filiform not conical at the apex. That might point to M. palustris but there are about 10 flowers in the capitulum. Unlikely to be M. hirtus - no plant more than 1m high.
