Wiborgia is a genus of plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It includes nine species of shrubs endemic to the Cape Provinces of South Africa. They grow in fynbos or renosterveld (Mediterranean-climate shrubland), mostly in sandy flats and rocky areas.[5] The genus was named for Erik Viborg by Carl Peter Thunberg.[1]
