Description:

While many plant families in South Africa contribute to the wealth of the fynbos, the presence of the Restionaceae is its unique distinguishing feature. This new edition of Restios of the Fynbos, first published in 2000, has been expanded and updated to incorporate the latest axonomy. Beautifully illustrated with over 400 colour images, 3D-scanned from freshly picked specimens, it includes how restios function and their role in the fynbos, an overview of the basic botanical features of restio plants, representative examples of all African genera, including all Cape Peninsula species, simple comparative tables or keys for easy ID and concise information for growing restios. Handy and compact, it will appeal to anyone wanting to discover the magical world of the restios, whether in the field or as water-wise accent plants in the garden.
