About this book

Twenty full colour plates and descriptions of plants appear in this biennial series, which has become a collector's item of the African and specifically South African flora. This volume is dedicated to Auriol Batten, one of South Africa's finest botanical artists. Contributions to this colourful edition include Kniphofia caulescens, Aloe succotrina, Adansonia za, Acanthopsis deisperma, Vaccinium exul and Zoutpansbergia caerulea. Three new species (Ceropegia terebriformis, Othonna globosa and O. pumilio) and one new name combination (Curio muirii) are published in this volume.

The botanical art is mainly the work of SANBI resident artist, Gillian Condy; other artists contributing to this volume are Mark Fothergill, Marieta Visagie and Sandie Burrows. A guide for authors and artists, and an index to species is also included.
