Hello all. I am going to be in South Africa for 6 months from June to December. Then hopefully permanently.

Last time I visited the west coast national park it was flower season and I was irritated that I did not know the plants. This time I want to be prepared. Can anyone suggest a good flower i.d book?

Thanks

This may be too late to help Stritchy, but might be of interest to others. The field guide recommended to me by a top SA botanist is Field Guide to Fynbos by John Manning, published by Struik.

There was a wild flower guide to plants of the West Coast published by the Botanical Society. The best place to find books on wild flowers is at the bookshop at Kirstenbosch.
