Namaqualand is justifiably famous for the floral wonderland it becomes in spring, when seas of bright flowers carpet the land.

Astonishingly, the carpet comprises 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, along with beautiful full-colour photographs.

This is a must-have guide for visitors to Namaqualand, or for anyone interested in the wild flowers of southern Africa.
