Recommended Price 
June 2009
About the book: 

South Africa, together with Lesotho and Swaziland, has a diverse landscape, with habitats that range from montane to semidesert and fynbos to subtropical forest. Equally varied, the region's flora encompasses some 19000 shrubs and herbs, a large proportion of which bear flowers of intricate and often stunning beauty. 

Field guide to wildflowers of South Africa describes more than 1100 of these, highlighting the most conspicuous species and those most likely to be encountered across the country. With an emphasis on identifying plants progressively to family, genus and species level, a novel identification aid and easy-to-use keys guide users to the correct family and genus, while individual species descriptions, accompanied by a clear photograph, a distribution map and an indication of flowering season, help them to pinpoint the plant. 

By using this guide, wildflower enthusiasts at all levels will now be able to identify plants accurately in any part of South Africa.
