Review By: Agri Boeke/Books - Oct/Nov 2012

(Ook beskikbaar in Afrikaans as Fotogids tot die Veldblomme van Suid Afrika ) 

This countrywide guide includes nearly 900 of the most common and conspicuous wildflowers that grow in South Africa and the neighbouring countries of Lesotho, Swaziland and Namibia. 
The English edition has been fully updated to reflect recent taxonomic changes. This book is now also available in Afrikaans for the fist time.

  • An easy-to-use format divides the country into three main wildflower regions, grassland and savannah, fynbos and Namaqualand, grouping the species into each region.
  • Each of the almost 900 species is illustrated and described, with information on its common and scientific names, habitat, distribution map, flowering times and local uses.
  • An ingenious quick guide helps the reader to narrow down the options at a glance.
  • Similar species are grouped together to aid comparison and the concise text highlights their differences.
