1) Actually a very 'common' plant and lots of places used as a barrier on the median/island of highways. I know in the Berg-en-Dal area there are also quite a lot.
It is Bauhinia galpinii
Pride of De Kaap, Vlam-van-die-Vlakte (Afr)

Hi JJ

This is Bauhinia galpinii - "Pride-of-de kaap" Bauhinia (Eng.) - "Vlam-van-die-vlakte" (Afr.)

It is usually a multi stemmed climber, scrambling over other other trees and bushes, but can also be a multi stemed small tree. Flowers in summer (+/- November to February.
