About this book

South Africa's floral heritage is one of the richest in the world. The best-loved and most representative wild flowers, shrubs and succulents, covering 300 species in 66 families, have been photographed, and brief captions identify each flower and indicate when and where it is likely to be seen. Plates are grouped according to families and a brief commentary introduces each family. Anecdotes relating to utilitarian, medicinal or horticultural use are also given.
