Namaqualand is justifiably famous for the floral wonderland it becomes in spring, when seas of orange, yellow and white flowers carpet the land. In this region one finds not only carpets of annuals, but also a wide variety of geophytes (bulbs), dwarf shrubs and succulents - some 3,800 species, of which 28% are endemic.This book introduces nearly 600 species, highlighting those most commonly found, most conspicuous, spectacular or interesting, as well as endemics. An introduction touches on the species selection for the book, the climatic and topographical subregions within Namaqualand, plant names and uses and conservation issues.The concise species descriptions also give seed and fruit details, uses, local growing conditions and flowering times, and are accompanied by beautiful full-color photographs. An illustrated glossary and comprehensive index round off the book.This is a must-have guide for visitors to Namaqualand, or for anyone interested in the wild flowers of southern Africa.
