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 South African flora. This issue includes, among others, a new species of Thorncroftia, a pineapple lily (Eucomis zambesiaca), a beautiful bulbous plant called sandui (Veltheimia bracteata), Begonia homonyma, a handsome South African species that has been in cultivation for over 150 years, the bladder-nut (Diospyros whyteana), a fast-growing tree that will thrive in shady gardens in areas with cool or warm summers, the succulent Lavrania haagnerae of northwestern Namibia where it is endemic to the border area between the Damaraland and Kaokoveld regions, Dewinteria petrophila which grows in crevices in granite cliffs of the western Otjihipa Mountains in northwestern Kaokoveld of northern Namibia and Ixora foliicalyx, a Malagasy tree with beautiful white, sweetly scented flowers.

The botanical art is mainly the work of SANBI resident artist, Gillian Condy; other artists contributing to this issue are Barbara Pike, Marieta Visagie, Sibonelo Chiliza, Vicki Thomas and Omer Van de Kerckhove. There is a guide for authors and artists and an index to species.
