About the book: 
This field guide to the Restionaceae, or Cape reeds, commonly called restios, unpacks a unique family of fynbos plants found at the southern tip of South Africa. A hands-on, practical book, it allocates a generous double-page spread to most herbs. 

Beautifully illustrated with photographs and over 400 colour images (scanned from living plants), this new edition of Els Dorrat-Haaksma's respected guide has now been revised, updated and freshly designed for greater ease of use. It will help demystify restios, a less known component of the fynbos – one that has in recent years become increasingly popular with gardeners and landscape designers as restios find their rightful place amongst the 'architectural' plants. It will be welcomed by all nature lovers, whether tourists, hikers, gardeners or botanists (both amateur and professional).
