Southern Africa is the natural home of the richest and most diverse succulent flora in the world. These plants come in all shapes and sizes, from trees, such as the baobab at more than 20 m tall, to miniature soil huggers, just a few millimetres high, which mimic their pebble-desert surroundings. This user-friendly field guide features more than 700 southern African succulents, focusing on the most interesting and commonly encountered species. An introduction to families and their key features will help readers identify the relevant group, and concise accounts describing the plants' diagnostic features will enable quick identification of species. Entries are well supported by colour photographs and distribution maps. More than just an ID guide for plant lovers, this book will inspire gardeners and landscapers in search of low-maintenance, waterwise solutions for cultivation.
