Paragliding Porterville - The Disa Uniflora Orchid found in the Porterville mountains.

Porterville is home to a very rare flower, the Disa Uniflora Orchid.

The sulphur-yellow Disa can only be found in one small colony and is extremely scarce because its colour does not attract the Mountain Pride Butterfly responsible for its pollination.

The Red Disa Orchid or “Flower of the Gods” is the official emblem of the Western Province Rugby Union Team and is displayed on the players’ jerseys.
