Description:

South Africa is a wildflower paradise, home to a rich flora of around 19 000 different species of flowering plants. These range from diminutive succulents little more than a centimetre high to towering forest giants. Many are extremely beautiful. The country has a long history of interest in its plants but the sheer number of species makes their identification difficult, even for professional botanists. The number of wildflower guides available in bookstores is eloquent testimony to this. This splendid Photo Guide to the Wildflowers of South Africa illustrates nearly 900 of the most common and conspicuous wildflowers in South Africa and concentrates on those that are most likely to attract the attention of the average traveller in the more popularly visited parts of the country. These are particularly the Drakensberg of Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, the eastern seaboard, the Western Cape and Namaqualand. Within these areas three main wildflower regions have been identified that coincide in broad terms with one or more of the main vegetation types that occur across the country. These three regions are Grassland and Savannah, Fynbos, and Namaqualand. The floras of these three regions are largely complementary, with little overlap, and the few common species that stretch across more than one region are featured in each.
