Description: This is the other in a set of two, one of which might be Erica mollis. See here: http://www.ispot.org.za/node/291033 This is the light pink one at the back. This one also has an enlarged anther, leading me to think it is Erica mollis, but the leaves on this one are lax wherereas on the dark pink one, they are tight. I have attached a "ruler pic of the dark pink one for comparison (pic 4). In a (dryish) seep.

Description: I thought the plant at the back was different to the one in the front, but now I am not so sure. The leaves of the dark pink one are more tightly bunched, while the light pink one has laxer leaves and the flowers extend to the top. Picture 4 is the inside bits of the of the dark pink one. I have attached a "ruler" pic of the light pink one for comparison. and will add as a separate observation here http://www.ispot.org.za/node/291039 Enlarged anther leads me to think it is Erica mollis.

Description: Interesting colour variations. Last week I went up Kasteelpoort and then down the Diagonal Path. I didn't see any Ericas lutea on the Kasteelpoort track at all, and there were lots on the Diagonal Path. Similarly, Ericas calcyna seem to favour Kasteelpoortover the Diagonal Path. So the same buttress has different plants growing on either side of it.
