Rondebosch Common has a long history as an open space for public use. This valuable 40 ha block lies in a built-up area surrounded by established homes, schools and hospitals. The area supports a natural remnant of the critically endangered Cape Flats sand fynbos, with patches of renosterveld, and is also a seasonal wetland.

Over 300 plant species have been verified on the site, of which nine appear in the Red Data List, whilst 110 different bird species have also been recorded.
The common is very popular among locals, who can be seen jogging, walking their dogs, exercising and enjoying the open space every day.

I found Moraea vegeta growing under the pines at the very south side of Sawkins Rd. 23 August 2010. It is not listed in the book.
