Recorded within southern Africa only from
Mount Buchwa in Zimbabwe (Palgrave and Palgrave 2002). However,
it is found more commonly in other parts of Africa where it
grows in clearings of evergreen forest, in swamp forest, and
along mountain streams. Has a bamboo-like appearance, growing in
dense clumps to a height of 2.5 to 7 m.
