Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Highveld: Also Useful in Adjacent Grassland and Bushveld
This field guide focuses on the wild flowers of the Highveld and surrounding areas. Designed as a practical identification handbook, it aims to help nature-lovers in the field identify the various wild flowers they encounter. The 763 species described in this book are divided into six colour groups, so that colour is the first clue to the flower's identity. Within the colour group the species are organized into families, each defined by its diagnostic characters. Flowers occurring in more than one colour group can be found in each relevant group.
